Managers Antonio Conte (right) and Jose Mourinho have been embroiled in a war of words

Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho have been at loggerheads for days following the Manchester United manager’s suggestion that the Chelsea boss was a "clown".

The Italian retaliated by claiming Mourinho had senile dementia, having forgotten his previous touchline antics.

Old Trafford boss Mourinho followed that with a jibe about match fixing – hinting at Conte’s time at Siena.

The former Juventus manager then bit back once more, calling Jose Mouinho a “little man in the past, present and the future”.

And Conte has stood by his claims, insisting he regrets nothing about the heated exchange and is awaiting Mourinho’s next rebuttal.

Conte instead turned his attention to the Carabao Cup clash with Arsenal and he expects a thrilling game just like the 2-2 draw last week in the league.

“The last one was an exciting game, for those watching,” he added.

“Tomorrow the game will be very open, both teams wants to try to win and attack and when you have two teams wanting the same things you can have an exciting game.

“I hope to have a good result.

“This is the first game, at home, then there is the one away. We want to reach the final, as do Arsenal.”
