The crowd at the Emirates Stadium chanted “boring, boring Chelsea” late in the two sides’ 0-0 stalemate on Sunday but the Portuguese took a swipe at his opposite number
The Blues saw out their game plan perfectly in securing the draw that they needed to maintain a 10-point gap from their London rivals and take what captain John Terry described as a “big step” towards the title.
But Arsenal supporters let their feelings be known towards the end of the match, chanting “boring, boring Chelsea” as the game petered out.
Mourinho, however, responded in typically defiant fashion after the game by referring to the Gunners’ failure to win the league title since 2004.
“I think boring is 10 years without the title,” he said. “I think waiting, waiting, waiting for the title for 10 years is very boring.
“Maybe they were not singing to us. When you are playing at home and take your No.9 off … maybe they wanted to see [Olivier] Giroud and [Danny] Welbeck together.
“The boring team has scored the second most goals in the Premier League and has the best goal difference.
I think only top teams can be top of the league since day one.”
