Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he fancies Manchester City’s chances of clinching the Premier League title despite his side being top and nine points ahead at the moment.
Chelsea defeated Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, thanks to second-half strikes from Samuel Eto’O, Eden Hazard and a brace from Demba Ba.
With nine matches to the end of the season, the ‘Blues’ are seven points clear of Liverpool and Arsenal, who are second and third respectively, each with a game in hand.
City have three outstanding games to catch-up with the leaders, but their goal difference of 42, which is 8 goals better than Chelsea’s, has caught the Portuguese boss’ attention lately.
“I would prefer to be in Man City’s position because they have three matches in hand, Mourinho said, after Saturday’s win.
“At the moment I have a nine-point lead but I would prefer to be in their position because if they win all their games in hand they are top of the league.
“We don’t have control of our destiny – if we win all our matches then maybe we are not champions. If Man City win their games they are champions.”
