Jose Mourinho confident Chelsea will end the season as champions

Jose Mourinho believes there are up to five teams in the Premier League title race, but he is confident Chelsea will end the season as champions.

The Blues are six points clear of second-placed Manchester City and still have a game in hand of the reigning Premier League champions.

Despite their Champions League exit, Mourinho has the utmost faith in his players and is confident they will hold off the challenge of their rivals to be crowned champions in May.
“We are in front, the advantage is not half a body, the advantage is significant, but still a long way to go,” said Mourinho.

“We are there, we are strong, we are confident. We believe in our capacity to stay there until the last match.

“We know we fight against that word you use so many times – complacency – the best way to fight is to know (there is a) long way to go.”
Chelsea are ten points ahead of fifth-placed Liverpool, but Mourinho is wary to write off any of the teams in the top five.
“I think it’s still five (in the title race), because the distance is still mathematically possible,” Mourinho told reporters ahead of Sunday’s clash with Hull.

“The fifth, the fourth, don’t have to fight against one, they have to overcome three.

“The distance is so short and mathematically I see that things are open.”
