Jose Mourinho: I don't look to the table or the number of points


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists he's not looking at the table or the gap between his team and Everton ahead of tomorrow's game.

Roberto Martinez's side have struggled this season and are 29 points behind the leaders but the Portuguese expects a tough game on Wednesday at Stamford Bridge.

"We had two very difficult matches against City and Villa, we have a third one now against Everton and we have to try to do the best and try to get the maximum points possible," Mourinho said.

"I don't look to the table or to the number of points, I look to the team and their quality, and they are a very good team.

"For example, against Aston Villa, I was celebrating my victory after the match. I didn't even know the result of Man City.

"I'm confident we can win tomorrow."

Meanwhile, Mourinho says there is still a long way to go before the title race is over.

"We go game after game, not thinking too far [ahead]. Seven points with 14 matches is a long way to go," he said.

"If it was 14 points with seven matches to go, you are almost, almost, almost there. But seven points with 14 matches to go is a long way to go.

"What is seven points? It's better than zero. In another country I would say it's a lot. In every other country the top teams only lose points in between them. In this country seven points is not a lot."
