Arsene Wenger admitted he has no regrets over shoving Jose Mourinho during the London derby on Sunday. The Frenchman lost the rag and
pushed Mourinho on the sideline after Gary Cahill attempted to assassinate Alexis Sanchez with a despicable foul. the Arsenal boss showed no signs of remorse when explaining his case to the press.

What is to regret after that?

I wanted to go from A to B and somebody confronted me in between without any sign of welcome. B was Sanchez, to see how badly he was injured. Honestly, I don’t listen to what [Mourinho] says.

Chelsea ran out 2-0 victors over Arsenal, which ended the Gunner's unbeaten start to the league campaign. Wenger felt slightly aggrieved by referee Martin Atkinson's performance and criticised him for letting some fouls go unpunished.

I think Oscar was lucky to stay on the pitch with the repeated fouls he made. He got a yellow card in the 88th minute and he was purposefully fouling on every break. Ivanovic as well. There were some bad fouls but that’s down to the referee, it’s not down to me.
