Jose Mourinho on injuries, the title race and fatigue


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has backed his side to silence the critics and push on to win the English Premier League.

The Blues drew four of their last six games in all competitions but the Portuguese believes his players are full of confidence ahead of the last part of the season.

"We are in front and the advantage is not half a body, the advantage is significant but it is still a long way to go," Mourinho said on Friday.

"We are there, we are strong, we are confident and we believe in our capacity to stay there until the last match, and the best way to fight against complacency is to know there is a long way to go and there are difficult matches and difficult opponents.

"We have been chased since day one, not just in the last couple of weeks so this has become something normal for us, to know we are top of the league but to know the others are behind us.

"They are good teams, they have ambitions and don't let us enjoy an easy ride.

"There are little things that stopped a couple of players from training well during the week but I don't think it will stop them from playing [against Hull City].

"The way we worked last week and the way we worked this week, the players are confident and the normal tendency now is to improve until the end of the season.

"Normally in this period the tendency is to accumulate fatigue and stress and big matches in the Champions League, but our season now has space to work and improve and end the season in a very strong way."
