Two Chelsea fans have risked incurring the wrath of the Arsenal faithful by posing with a replica Premier League trophy outside the Emirates Stadium and draping a flag over the statue of club legend Tony Adams.

The photograph has found its way on to social media and is sure to go viral - particularly once Arsenal fans discover what has happened.

The Adams statue was unveiled in 2011 - alongside statues of fellow club legends Herbert Chapman and Thierry Henry - and to see it covered by a 'Chelsea champions' flag is guaranteed the rile the Gunners' supporters.

This comes just days after Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho mocked Arsenal in his surprising end-of-season speech.

The revered Portuguese coach, who also aimed fire at Manchester United and Manchester City, suggested Arsenal have no answer for Chelsea when they decide to play with defensive tactics.

"They score really beautiful goals and then the bus comes along and they couldn't do it,” Mourinho told a captivated audience at the £240-a-head event at the Battersea Revolution venue.

Mourinho has Arsenal's number

Mourinho's side were accused of playing negative football when they travelled to the Emirates Stadium last month. The Arsenal fans spent most of the second half chanting "Boring, boring Chelsea" as the match ended 0-0.

For Chelsea, it proved to be a hugely significant point - one which helped them on their way to becoming Premier League champions for the first time since 2010.

Mourinho is the master of knowing how to grind out a result when necessary, which is why he is one of the most successful coaches of his generation.

But it must be noted that Chelsea scored more Premier League goals than Arsenal this season - only Manchester City netted more - so accusations of 'boring football' from the Gunners' faithful will not have concerned Mourinho or the Blues' supporters.

Arsenal fans plotting revenge?

Perhaps Arsenal supporters were think of a way to get back at Chelsea after this latest photo emerged. They will have something to celebrate themselves if they lift the FA Cup at Wembley Stadium this weekend.

Arsene Wenger's men can win the FA Cup for the second consecutive season by beating Aston Villa on Saturday evening.
