As Arsenal prepares to meet Tottenham for the first time this weekend, head coach Mikel Arteta said, Jose Mourinho is still a world class manager.

Interestingly, Mourinho, who is known as one of the most decorated CVs in world football after winning league titles in England, Italy and Spain.

According to Evening Standard, due to Tottenham’s current form, the 57-year-old has come under serious criticism in recent seasons.

Meanwhile, Spurs are currently ninth in the Premier League, one place below Arsenal, while they last night drew 0-0 at Bournemouth without a single shot on target.

As for Arteta, he is under no illusions about the challenge his side face as Tottenham pick themselves up to host Arsenal on Sunday.
