Mourinho: ‘Very defensive’ Chelsea will not be caught

Jose Mourinho believes his former club Chelsea will be crowned Premier League champions, but could not help having a little dig at them.

The Blues are nine points clear and have the chance to extend their lead to 12 on Sunday, and their ex-boss believes nobody will be able to catch them.

“Honestly I don’t think so,” Mourinho told Sky Sports following United’s 2-0 win at Watford.

“Why? Because Chelsea are a very good defensive team, they defend very well and defend with lots of players, very good players, and are very well organised.

“I think in this situation, a very defensive team wins the title with counter-attack goals, set pieces goals, and individual goals from talented players. So I don’t think they’re going to let it slip.

“But football is football, you never know.”
