Former Chelsea manager Mourinho Jose Mourinho has blasted Arsenal of ahead Spurs facing Alex Iwobi’s Everton on Monday night.
Tottenham Hotspur boss hit back at Gunners following a Facebook post by the Gunners media team last week.
After Spurs’ recent 3-1 loss against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, the Gunners were quick to point out that they had travelled to the same venue last month and claimed a 2-1 win in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
Mourinho has accused Arsenal of revelling in their downfall, even when “they don’t have much to celebrate”.
Tottenham face Arsenal this Sunday and Mourinho told reporters ahead of Monday’s game against Everton that: “If they were top of the league or fighting for top four and in a really good moment, they wouldn’t enjoy the problems of others.
“You only enjoy the problems of others when you are also in trouble. So I think in the end, it’s a little more about that. They don’t have much to celebrate, so they have to take any opportunity to do it. They are in a very similar situation to us in the table.
“I don’t like to connect the club with such posts or tweets because probably, the person who did it, did it by himself. I don’t believe it was (Mikel) Arteta who posted it — probably it was some guy who has been working from home for three months. No problem, at home we will be waiting for them!”
Arsenal currently sit seventh in the Premier League, four points clear of Tottenham, who do have a game in hand.
