Mourinho: Chelsea WILL lose but it won’t halt our title charge…
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has claimed that his team’s unbeaten run will eventually come to an end this season, but is confident that any potential loss will not stop a Blues title charge.
Reports on Goal.com explain that the Portuguese coach doubts his side’s chances of remaining unbeaten for the duration of the season but is confident they will bounce back immediately from any such setback.
The Stamford Bridge side can make it 18 games without defeat when the face West Brom on Saturday, and know that victory could extend their Premier League lead to an ominous seven points.
But far from being scared by the prospect of the run coming to an end, Mourinho is confident his side are strong enough mentally to bounce back from any setback: “The thing that gives us confidence is the results we are getting are not occasional. They’re because we’re playing well,” he said.
“We believe that, when we lose points, the next game we are going to play well again. Against Maribor in the Champions League [earlier in November], we lost two points but in the next game we were not in crisis. We were at Liverpool to play well again.
“I don’t believe there’ll be a Chelsea crisis in the season. I believe Chelsea will lose points and matches, but not in a crisis of results. I truly believe in our ability.
“We don’t have pressure to lead. The pressure is for the ones who are coming behind. I always felt the pressure when I was behind, not when I was on the top and I’ve always been competing for titles. To be first is easier than to be second. If you’re first, you think just about yourself.”
