Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who’s now in charge of Manchester United has called Chelsea a defensive side, while admitting that it would be difficult for Manchester United to catch up with Chelsea.
Despite all Chelsea’s attacking brand of football, Mourinho believes Chelsea are a defensive side.
“You have to be honest and say that is very difficult,” he told Sky Sports when asked if United could still win the title. “It’s not just the difference in points, it’s also the Chelsea philosophy of playing.
“They score one goal and they win. They defend a lot. They defend well. They are winning and, in the last 20 minutes, they bring defenders in.
“They don’t care what people say, what people think. They just want to win. And, because of that, I don’t see them losing many points.”
