Mourinho conceives EPL title to Manchester City

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has again insisted that his side are not in the title race following Saturday’s defeat to Aston Villa and consider it to Manchester City.

The west Londoners slipped to defeat in the Midlands as Fabian Delph’s winner stopped the Blues, who had both Willian and Ramires sent off prior to Mourinho being sent to the stands himself, from extending their lead at the top of the table.

But despite the fact that his side are six points ahead of second-placed Manchester City, Mourinho reiterated that he doesn’t see his side in the mix to be crowned Premier League champions.

He told reporters: “We are not in the title race. We are in a match race. We play every match. We try to win, we think we can win.

“We give everything to win. Sometimes you do, sometimes you don’t. But that’s our race; improve and try our best every match.”

Mourinho also expressed his frustration with Chris Foy after being sent off in the aftermath of Ramires’ red card, insisting he asked for “five seconds” to discuss the dismissal with the referee.

 

Manchester City boss praises team after tough week

 

Manager Manuel Pellegrini praised Manchester City’s resilience after they responded to a tough week and Vincent Kompany’s red card to beat Hull 2-0 and keep the pressure on Chelsea.

City exited the Champions League and FA Cup last week and had Kompany sent off for fouling Nikica Jelavic inside 10 minutes of their Premier League return.

But City won to go second – six points off Chelsea with two games in hand.

“It was a very good response. It was a very difficult week,” Pellegrini said.

“We kept the ball very well today and without the ball you cannot make damage”
