Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his side are not celebrating just yet, despite taking a huge stride towards the Premier League title with a 1-0 home win over Manchester United.
An Eden Hazard goal seven minutes before half-time was the difference between the two sides at Stamford Bridge, with the Blues moving ten points clear at the top of the table with six games to play.
We are still getting results and that’s the mark of champions.
A showdown with nearest challengers Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium is next on the agenda on Sunday 26th April, with Mourinho not getting too carried away until the title is actually confirmed.
The Portuguese said after a crucial victory over the Red Devils: “We are not celebrating. Football is not about ‘ifs’ and ‘almosts’, it is about mathematics. When it is done, it is done and until that moment we don’t celebrate.
“I feel we are almost there, but there are no ‘almosts’ in football.”
Chelsea are now 1.006 to be crowned champions, with United 351.00 and Arsenal 34.00.
Meanwhile, Blues skipper John Terry praised his side for again getting the job done, without possibly being at their best.
He told Sky Sports: “We have not been playing as well as we can of late. We were in our best form early on in the season and just before Christmas
“I think we are doing enough, we have done all season. We are still getting results and that’s the mark of champions.”
The Blues have won their last four Premier League games by a one-goal margin, edging out Hull City, Stoke City, Queens Park Rangers and United, having dropped four points in their previous three games as they were held to draws by Burnley and Southampton.
