Mourinho, who was speaking after his team dropped two points on Sunday in a 1-1 draw with Southampton, was quick to point out that his side are still six points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand, and have actually extended their advantage after second place Manchester City lost to Burnley.
However, the Gunners are just seven points adrift after their win over the Hammers, and have been in fine form in the Premier League in recent weeks – winning eight, and losing just one of their last nine games.
