Jose Mourinho remains confident Chelsea will prevail over Manchester United to claim a third consecutive Premiership title.
The reigning champions reduced the gap at the top to two points on Sunday after beating Everton 3-2 while United lost at West Ham.
“I am as convinced as I was three or four months ago we are going to win the title,” Mourinho told The Sun.
“I have won four consecutive titles. It’s not normal for one club to do that and even less so for one coach.
“The work done by the club, more than the players, is always questioned. They don’t give us the credit we believe we deserve.
“We were champions in the first year and champions again. If we are not champions again then our work will be analysed in a negative way.”
Mourinho also denied suggestions that he encourages his players to bend the rules.
The Chelsea boss, currently embroiled in a row following his claim that Everton’s Andy Johnson was a diver, is adamant he does not instruct his players to do likewise.
He added: “The end doesn’t justify the means. I’m a just person.
“I don’t like to lose because of an injustice and I don’t like to win because of an injustice.”
