FOOTBALL fans have suggested Jose Mourinho could be behind Arsenal’s poor run of form.
The Gunners have picked up just one point from their last three Premier League games, dropping from the top of the table down to fourth.
And some fans have pointed out the comments Mourinho made prior to this disappointing run.
The former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham boss was asked who he believes will win the Premier League this season prior to Arsenal’s draw with Liverpool.
The interviewer then followed that prediction up by saying: “No Arsenal?”
Before Mourinho dismissed the Gunners with a simple: “Nah.”
What has followed is a dismal set of results for Mikel Arteta‘s men as their title hopes have taken a huge dent.
Putting Arsenal’s form and Mourinho’s comments together, one social media user said: “He cursed the team. Since that day the team is being robbed and our form dropped. He need to be arrested.”
Another added: “This [Mourinho’s comment] ain’t even knowledge, it’s just wizardry💀💀.”
A third replied: “This is football heritage lmao.”
While a fourth responded: “When Jose speaks you listen 😂😂.”
Next up for Arsenal is a home tie with Liverpool in the FA Cup third round on Sunday, before they return to Premier League action on January 20 when they host Crystal Palace.
Meanwhile, Mourinho, who won three Premier League titles across two stints with Chelsea, is still managing Roma in Serie A.
They sit seventh, five points adrift of the top four.
They also missed out on an automatic spot in the last 16 of the Europa League.
The Italian side will face Feyenoord in the play-off round – a team Mourinho’s Roma beat to win the Europa Conference League in 2022.
