Jose Mourinho on Chelsea's five-point lead and technology in football


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says he expected Manchester City to take all three points against the Magpies.

The Citizens were at their very best in disposing of Newcastle United 5-0, reducing the gap from the Blues to only five points.

But the Portuguese says the gap doesn't reflect what his side deserved so far this season.

"I was expecting them [Manchester City] to win," Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"I don't think Newcastle is the kind of team, in spite of their victory in the Capital One Cup, to go to the home of a big team and make it really difficult.

"I think they feel much more comfortable when they are playing at home than when they are playing away. Obviously 5-0 is a huge result but I was expecting the three points.

"They have so many good players but obviously David [Silva] is important for them. He occupies different areas on the pitch. It doesn't matter where he plays, on the right or the left or behind the striker, he's a fantastic player.

"If you're asking me about the five points difference I would say, if we're in a normal situation where mistakes are part of the game at this point, we are talking about the points at Tottenham, the points at Southampton and we would be 12 points ahead."

Meanwhile, Mourinho has called for football's governing bodies to improve the use of technology for refereeing decisions.

"If the referee can't see a penalty three metres in front of him, an official in front of a screen can't miss it," he said.

"If we want to protect the integrity of the referee and believe that the mistake is the consequence of misinterpretation or a bad position, I think technology can help."
