Chelsea boss Mourinho: Arsenal clash not significant

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has shrugged off the importance of their clash with Arsenal.

Chelsea's lead over Arsenal and Liverpool at the top has been cut to four points, while Manchester City are just a further two points behind.

All three teams have games in hand on Chelsea but Mourinho tried to downplay the significance of this derby. He said: "This is no more significant than the last game in Birmingham. Maybe it's a bit less because of what happened last weekend.

"I don't think about them [our title rivals]. I think about us. We want to make the maximum points we can in the season, so if we can make another three points, that's good.

"It [Mourinho's record against Wenger] doesn't matter. It's not against him. It's Chelsea against Arsenal. I didn't play Arsenal with Inter, Madrid or Porto, just Chelsea. It's Arsenal v Chelsea, not me against him. Records don't play any role."
