Jose Mourinho has never lost to Arsene Wenger and has enjoyed a few mind games with his opposite number this season

Victory for Arsenal last weekend and defeat for Chelsea has left the title race wide open. The beauty of this season has been its unpredictability. Few would have tipped an out of sorts Aston Villa against a ruthlessly consistent Chelsea side. With that in mind, can Arsenal cause an upset at the Bridge on Saturday lunchtime?

“It’s the game of the season for us because it will be against a direct opponent.”

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger (Daily Mail)

And an upset it would be due to Chelsea’s 75 game unbeaten home record in the league with Mourinho in charge. Add to that the fact that Wenger has never beaten Mourinho (W0 L5 D5) before and the Gunners have a mountain to climb. The season has proved that anyone can beat anyone however, and in Wenger’s 1000th game in charge, it would be fitting that the title race took yet another dramatic turn.
