The Blues’ shock 2-1 loss at home to Sunderland last weekend has left their title challenge hanging by a thread, prompting manager Mourinho to shift his focus to the Champions League.

His side drew 0-0 at Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their semi-final earlier this week and Mourinho created a storm afterwards by claiming that he would field a second-string team at Liverpool to preserve his players for next week’s return leg.

But Mourinho kept his cards close to his chest in his pre-game media conference, telling reporters including the Independent: “You wait for Sunday, and Sunday you know our team.

“We are going to try to win. That’s the simple and objective answer. Nobody goes to a game to lose.”

The West London outfit are the last major obstacle barring Liverpool’s path to a first league title since 1990.

Victory for Brendan Rodgers’s side would eliminate Chelsea from the title race and leave Liverpool needing just four points from their final two games against Crystal Palace and Newcastle United to claim the crown.
