We hear a lot about Arsene Wenger’s record against Jose Mourinho but did you know that the Chelsea manager has never managed to win a league game at the Emirates?

You might not have realised that because it’s never mentioned – although if it was the other way around, as we know, it would probably be the only stat you’d ever hear.

Chelsea’s 2-2 draw at Newcastle meant that the Whingey One is still looking for his first win at St James’ Park and while he’s managed to secure three points at every other Premier League ground, he has yet to manage it at the Emirates, leaving on his big blue bus with only draws.

It means little, but it’s a stat that I like.

And it’s certainly one we should hear far more of.

If we can manage to get a referee that lets us keep 11 players on the pitch when we face them later in the year, I fully expect that record to continue.
