When push comes to shove, Chelsea has win

ARSENAL manager Arsene Wenger has defended his actions after pushing Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho during a heated sideline confrontation.

The incident happened when Alexis Sanchez was injured in a tackle by Gary Cahill in the Blues' 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge.

Asked if he had regrets, Wenger replied: "What is to regret after that? I wanted to go from A to B and somebody confronted me without any sign of welcome... Was it a push? A little one."

A penalty from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa's ninth goal in seven games wrapped up the win to extend Chelsea's lead to five points.

Manchester United returned to the Premier League's top four for the first time in more than a year as Radamel Falcao's first United goal secured a 2-1 win against Everton.

West Ham beat QPR 2-0 and Tottenham won for the first time in four games, beating Southampton 1-0.
