Arsenal reached their 19th FA Cup final thanks to a brace scored by Alexis Sanchez against Reading in the FA Cup semi-final. Post the game, Arsene Wenger delivered the most telling blow to Chelsea and Jose Mourinho’s style of play this season.
In his post-match press conference, Wenger was asked about Chelsea’s win over Manchester United that night which almost ended any hopes for Arsenal to win this season’s Premier League title. Arsene manager tried to avoid the question by suggesting that he has no clue about the result and was not following the game.
During Wenger’s answer, a reporter gave him the score line from Chelsea’s win over Manchester United, which was 1-0. Listening to the score line, Wenger gave one of his famous smirk and then he went on to say: “1-0 … that’s usual.”
The smirk and the quote trolled Chelsea’s playing style this season where mostly this season, Mourinho’s side has played boring and dull football. Arsenal are the next opponent for Chelsea in the league and Wenger’s smirk and cheeky comment has surely re-opened the Mourinho-Wenger rivalry from the past.
