Manchester United's defeat at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday was a painful one for the man in the away dugout. Not only did Jose Mourinho see his team's 25-match unbeaten run come to an end, as well as its chances of finishing in the top four falter, but a personal record was broken.

Since arriving in England in 2004 as manager of Chelsea, Mourinho has built up a tense relationship with Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal manager. Verbal spats and touchline shoves have become commonplace. But the Portuguese has frequently come out on top, losing just once, in the Community Shield in 2015.

Quick-fire goals from Granit Xhaka and Danny Welbeck on Sunday saw that record come tumbling down. Here, Newsweek takes a look at the history of league matches between Mourinho and Wenger:
