Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho has wished Arsenal a ‘Merry Christmas’ after the Gunners were handed a favourable fixture list over the festive period.
Arsenal play Liverpool on December 22nd and do not play again until they travel to Selhurst Park to play Crystal Palace on December 28th. By comparison, Manchester United travel to Leicester City on December 23rd and face Burnley at home on Boxing Day three days later.
Mourinho admits he moans about the fixture list but he couldn’t help but take a swipe at Arsenal over their layout. Arsenal have been handed a favourable fixture list over Christmas.
‘For example, here’s another theme. And you probably have to agree with me,’ said Mourinho.
‘Do you think it is possible for Arsenal to play 22nd of December and 28th of December? Do you think it is possible? ‘You know, I wish them a Happy Christmas because they are going to have a Christmas while others they play 23-26.’
Mourinho and Arsenal manager, Wenger have been known to bicker over their different teams in the past with the Portuguese quick to tout his dominant win record over the French.
