A derby that Arsene Wenger has traditionally dominated slipped away from him on Saturday, and the Frenchman was visibly infuriated. Wengera s wrath was aimed at his team, which, according to the vastly experienced manager, just wasna t good enough.

Some criticism was reserved for referee Mark Atkinson. “We were not very good and the referee was at our level,” Wenger said. “He didn’t have a good day. “We were not good enough. They created more chances and we cannot dispute that they deserved to win the game. “I believe we gave the goals away, both the first and the second. We put some effort in, but we didn’t produce much going forward.” The most disappointing thing for Arsenal fans would be the manner of the defeat as their team had led the game with an early strike from record signing Mesut […]

In a result that sent shockwaves throughout the Premier League, Tottenham Hotspur put five past Jose Mourinhoa s Chelsea in a thrilling New Yeara s Day derby win at White Hart Lane. Never before has Mourinho conceded as many goals in a game whilst at the helm of Chelsea, and this is only the second time in his career his team has conceded five. The first was with Real Madrid against arguably the best club team this generation has seen a Pep Guardiolaa s Barcelona. This, however, was a whole different story. In what was Tottenhama s best performance of the season, academy graduate Harry Kane put the Chelsea defence to the sword, ably supported by the likes of Christian Eriksen and a born-again Nacer Chadli.
