Old foes Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho were involved in an astonishing pushing match on the touchline during Chelsea's 2-0 Premier League win over against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge today.

The two managers clashed after Blues defender Gary Cahill was booked for a strong challenge on Alexis Sanchez, with Wenger appearing to push Mourinho after the Chelsea manager charged out of his technical area.

The fourth official then broke the pair up and referee Martin Atkinson warned both managers that they would be sent to the stands if the spat continued

Of course, there has been no love lost between the managers over the years, with Mourinho memorably describing Wenger as both a "voyeur" and a "specialist in failure" in the past.
