Chelsea has undoubtedly been enjoying its most amazing run this English season; in fact, they never dripped on the board right from the day one. This feat has until been enjoyed only by Manchester United back in 1993-94 when they sustained their peak leaderboard position for 262 consecutive days and looking at the way Blues are static on the top, Mourinho looks affirmed to break that feat too. If we analyze the last few months of English topflight, North Londoners have ever been convincing to win the season comfortably and second term serving manager is as well confident to copy his first run at the helm. Talking about the possible achievement for the Portuguese, former Real Madrid boss said, “I don’t know if it hurts them or not, what I know is it’s not normal to be top of the league since day one. A team who arrives in August and is top of the league every day until April — that is the team that deserves the credit.
“We have had a good run since day one so nobody should be disappointed because we have been on a good run since August. Now we need 11 more points.”
Adding about the most competitive game they had to pass through in recent days, 52-year-old unhesitant recalls their last QPR win that made them do lots of hard work to score a maiden goal. Replying if they were fortunate to triumph that game, he added, “Were we fortunate? Yes. It was a typical game for 0-0. We controlled them very well and kept them far from the box because in the box Zamora and Austin are killers. They closed us down very well, they were very well-organised defensively and gave us a difficult match.
“I am obviously very happy with my team because we kept good emotional control, we never lost balance or were under pressure. We were always very stable and then we scored in the crucial moment of the game — I feel sorry for them because they fought hard to get a point.”
“He helped us win the match,” Mourinho added about Courtois. “I thought Courtois did very well, he was there for us. I told him at the start of the week after Hull and after Charlie Adam, we need him to give us a couple of points with a couple of saves and he did it.”
