Jose Mourinho accuses Arsene Wenger of "crying and moaning" over Diego Costa incident


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger should moan less and behave in a more professional way after the Blues battled past the Gunners on Saturday.

Kurt Zouma and Eden Hazard handed Chelsea a deserved win against the Frenchman's side as they moved up to 13th in the table.

Wenger complained about Mike Dean's decision not to send off striker Diego Costa but Mourinho was not impressed with the comments of his counterpart.

"I played against Arsenal many times and only once he [Arsene Wenger] didn't moan," Mourinho said after the game.

"That day we lost the game, we lost the cup [Community Shield]. It wasn't good for us but we behaved in a fantastic way. No excuses, no crying, no moaning.

"I played my first derby in September 2000, Benfica against Sporting. I told my players before the game you need emotional control. I've played derbies in Portugal, Spain, Italy, England and you don't win derbies without emotional control, it's a basic thing.

"I think you should speak about Gabriel and his mistake.

"Diego Costa played like he has to play. That's why you have full stadiums and you sell the game around the world for millions, because the game has to be played like that.

"That's why tomorrow I will go to a game which is comparable in terms of passion and dedication, New Zealand against Argentina [in the Rugby World Cup], I love it. Diego was fantastic, Man of the Match for me.

"It was the same referee that made every decision and didn't give two clear penalties to us. Gabriel did something to Hazard which is allowed in rugby, not football. In the box it's a penalty.

"In the second half another player did the same on Diego Costa. In rugby it's fantastic, in football it's a penalty."
