Tottenham manager Jose has hit back at a post on Arsenal’s social media channels which aimed a swipe at Spurs after their defeat to Sheffield United last week.
The north London side were trumped 3-1 at Bramall Lane in controversial scenes on Thursday which Mourinho said left him “destroyed a little bit on the inside”.
As if to rub their noses in it, Arsenal compiled Mourinho’s misery with a pretty harsh Facebook post of the highlights from their win over the Blades in the FA Cup quarter-final.
Alongside the footage of the 2-1 win, the Gunners posted to their 38 million followers: “It’s not easy beating Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. Here’s a reminder of how it’s done.”

However, Mourinho has responded directly to the passing shot by firing one back himself by taunting them about their underwhelming season so far.
The Portuguese said: “If they were top of the league or fighting for top four and in a really good moment, they wouldn’t enjoy the problems of others.
“You only enjoy the problems of others when you are also in trouble. So I think in the end it’s a little more about that.
“They don’t have much to celebrate, so they have to take any opportunity to do it. They are in a very similar situation to us in the table.
“I don’t like to connect the club with such posts or tweets because probably the person who did it did it by himself.
“I don’t believe it was (Mikel) Arteta who posted it — probably it was some guy who has been working from home for three months. No problem, at home we will be waiting for them!”
