Unbeaten season out of the question, insists Chelsea boss

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has dismissed his side’s chances of going through the whole season unbeaten, believing that a slip up is inevitable.

Although the Blues extended their unbeaten start to 11 Premier League games following the 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday, Mourinho remains convinced that his side will suffer a loss at some point in the season.

“That will not happen. It is possible to talk of being champions, we can see ourselves as title contenders, but I don’t believe we will stay unbeaten,” Mourinho said in the aftermath of the Liverpool game.

“One day we will lose, a negative moment is bound to arrive and we have to be ready for it.

“We are in a good situation. I am very happy to be where we are in the league after playing our four games in Liverpool and Manchester, but there is still a long way to go.

The best team won and the way we played was fantastic, especially in the second half when the scores were level. Just about every team would accept a draw and a point as a good result at Anfield, but mine wouldn’t. They showed great ambition and confidence in looking for the win.”
