Petr Cech reveals major difference between Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger
Petr Cech hails Jose Mourinho's winning mentality

ARSENAL goalkeeper Petr Cech says Jose Mourinho has a win at all costs mentality - something Arsene Wenger is missing at the Gunners.

Mourinho arrived at Chelsea in the summer of 2004 - the same time as Cech - and the pair went on to win two Premier League titles, two League Cups and the FA Cup during his first stint in charge at the club.

When Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge in 2013, the duo added another Premier League crown and League Cup to their list of honours.

Cech, who left Chelsea for Arsenal two years ago, believes it was Mourinho's win at all costs mentality that inspired the Chelsea players to succeed.

The Portuguese boss has taken that mentality with him at Old Trafford, with Manchester United sitting top of the table after last season's Europa League and EFL Cup double.

But Cech admits that killer attitude is missing from Wenger at Arsenal, who have endured a terrible start to the campaign.

Cech said: "When he [Mourinho] arrived at Chelsea from Porto, he brought the main thing: he came from a club where it was not acceptable to him to finish second of the championship.

"He brought the same spirit in Chelsea. He thinks only about victory, whatever the price.

"He hates draws. If we returned to the dressing room with a draw, it was known that he would not be satisfied.

"On the other hand, he also wanted be able to keep a 1-0 or beat a team 5-0 if possible. No matter how, Mourinho wants the result.

"The philosophy at Arsenal is completely opposed to this.

"It is not win at all costs but we want to win with a good way of playing. This is beginning to change in our approach."
