    ARSENE Wenger still can't beat Jose Mourinho in England.

    Wenger got in a push, but Mourinho landed the bigger blow.

    Chelsea consolidated its lead in the Premier League by beating London rival Arsenal, 2-0, in a feisty Sunday encounter that saw Wenger lose his normal cool and give Mourinho a shove in the chest on the sideline.

    Eden Hazard converted a first-half penalty and former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas set up the second goal for Diego Costa in the 78th minute as Chelsea remained five points clear of defending champion Manchester City.

    Arsenal is nine points behind, having failed to avenge a 6-0 drubbing at Stamford Bridge last season. Wenger has yet to beat Mourinho in 12 meetings.

    United beat Everton, 2-1, to climb to fourth after goalkeeper David de Gea saved a penalty and made two crucial stops to deny the visitors a late equalizer at Old Trafford.
