Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has lashed out at city rivals Arsenal after his side's defeat to Sheffield United on Thursday, July 2nd.

The Lilywhites were condemned to 3-1 defeat at the Bramall Lane with Harry Kane's late minute strike emerging as a mere consolation at the end of the match.

Mikel Arteta's men had gone to the same venue four days earlier to secure victory over the Blades in their FA Cup quarterfinal clash.

The Portuguese-born tactician then returned the favour saying Arsenal have little "to celebrate" since they have not won the Premier League title since 2004.

Mourinho further stated that: "You only enjoy the problems of others when you are also in trouble,"

As it stands, the Gunners are four points better than Tottenham as they sit seventh on the table - three spots ahead of their rivals with five games to go.

According to BBC, Arsenal last lifted a title in 2017 while Tottenham's managed to reach their first Champions League final last year - about 11 years after winning the League Cup in 2008.

However, Mourinho believes attempts to poke fun at Tottenham say more about Arsenal than it does his club.

"I think if they were top of the league or fighting for top four in a really good moment they wouldn't enjoy the problems of others," Mourinho added.
