Is Jose Mourinho to blame for Arsenal’s horror run of form? Gunners’ nightmare since ex-Chelsea boss’ verdict revealed

A 1-1 draw with title rivals Liverpool was followed up by shock back-to-back defeats at the hands of West Ham and Fulham.

The results leave Arsenal five points adrift of Liverpool and below champions Manchester City on goal difference – with Pep Guardiola‘s side having played one game fewer.

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.

To which he replied: “Man City 51 per cent, Liverpool 49 per cent.”

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.
