"Chelsea will win Premier League title" - Jose Mourinho

Chelsea will win the Premier League title this season, manager Jose Mourinho has predicted.

The Blues were knocked out of the Champions League by Paris St-Germain in midweek but lead the top flight by five points with 11 games remaining.
Mourinho said: "The people who went out last Wednesday are the same who've been top of the league since day one.

"They are the same people who won the Capital One Cup and the same people who are going to win the Premier League."
Mourinho said that he held a meeting with his players to discuss their defeat, on away goals, in the last 16 of the Champions League and had now "closed the chapter".
He added: "The only thing to speak about the Champions League is that if we win the Premier League we are top seeds next season.

"What we can do now for our club is to win the Premier League. Our situation is good. Everybody would love to be in our position.

"If we win the Premier League and the League Cup it's a brilliant season."
The Chelsea manager had suggested his team didn't cope well enough with the pressure of their Champions League tie.
Mourinho added: "I think we will cope with the pressure of playing against Southampton.

"We have had key games since the start of the season. It's more difficult to start the season with the same points as everyone.

"Now we have five points more. At this moment it's easier."
