Mourinho says Chelsea deserve to top Premier League but issues title warning

first_img1 Jose Mourinho insists Chelsea fully deserve to lead the Premier League – but has warned his side there is plenty of work to be done to secure the title.The Blues have spent the entire season either top or joint top of the table and are seven points ahead of their nearest rival, Arsenal, with eight matches remaining.Speaking ahead of Sunday’s trip to QPR, Mourinho lauded his side’s consistency, although he did so with a hint of caution.“To be top of the league since day one shows consistency, stability, confidence and a brave approach to every game,” he said.“We are there, we deserve to be there, but every game is difficult. And we still have eight matches to play.”Mourinho knows the Premier League – a championship more competitive than Italy’s Serie A or Spain’s Primera Division, in his opinion – can throw up twists and turns in the closing weeks.The Blues boss was not surprised to see holders Manchester City slip up at Crystal Palace last Monday to all but end their title hopes.Mourinho added: “This is the Premier League. In other competitions it’s difficult to believe that the top team can lose four, five, six, seven matches.“In almost every country it’s very difficult for a top team to lose so many matches.“Here, yes. It’s possible. I’m not surprised. It’s happening to everybody. Everybody loses matches, everybody loses points.” Jose Mourinho last_img
