Jose Mourinho has said that his Chelsea side have the mental strength needed to hold off their competitors and win the Premier League this season.

By virtue of their seven-point lead over second-placed Arsenal, the Blues, who also have a game in hand, are overwhelming favourites to clinch a fourth league title – and third under Mourinho.

With so much at stake, it had been suggested that the West Londoners were struggling with the pressure after labouring to wins over Stoke City and Hull City in recent weeks.

However, the Portuguese insists that his troops are perfectly relaxed over their fate and is confident that they will deliver the goods.

“You can do amazingly well for seven, eight, nine months, but the moment of truth always arrives and the moment of truth for us is get the wins we need to be champions,” he told The Mirror.

“So to be mentally strong but, at the same time, be comfortable with the ­situation is very important.

“I think people are ­comfortable. I look at the players and see people who are relaxed to play these last two months – to fight for the title is the best motivation you can have in the game.”


One response to “Jose Mourinho: Chelsea will NOT bottle it”

  1. Amos Z. Gaye Sr. says:

    For the coming season, Chelsea must sell Branislav, mikel, Oriol Romeu, Cahill, and get us Koke, Hummels, Bale, Mauro Icardi, and kenedy to enforce our attack and defence. most of the goal been against us was for Branislav wing . what cry me was the goal score by davis luiz, he stood beind luiz instead of infront of him. so his dys are now number. Oscar is also slowing down now aday.
