Jose Mourinho has repeated his claims that Chelsea will win The Premiership.
Although Chelsea’s form has dipped in recent weeks Mourinho sees no reason be unduly concerned.
“I’m not a coach who cries – but one who tries to find solutions,” he declared.
“That’s what I did after the defeat against Real Betis and I will do so again after losing to Manchester United last week.
“There is no shame in defeat because we were champions last season, we are league leaders at the moment and we will be champions again for the second year running.
“I am with my players. I am not afraid of the future.”
Mourinho also laughed off Arsene Wenger’s suggestion that Arsenal’s record of 49 league games defined greatness.
“The defeat at Manchester United was my 50th game in the English league and we had not lost for the last 40.
“But statistics mean nothing.”
