Jose Mourinho has slammed suggestions that his Chelsea team are ‘boring’. Mourinho insisted that 18 other teams in the Premier League are more boring
Chelsea departed the Emirates Stadium on Sunday to a chorus of ‘boring, boring Chelsea’ from Arsenal supporters after a 0-0 draw edged them closer to a first Premier League title since 2010.
Jose Mourinho pointed out that his side have won more games and secured more points than any other team, with only current champions Manchester City having scored more goals.
“It cannot be true. If we are boring, and the number of goals decides if a team is boring or not, then 18 teams in the Premier League are more boring than us.
“Only Man City have more quality than us in these terms; if football is about the number of goals that you score. This is a criteria I can accept and if that is the case, Chelsea is the second best team.
“But if a good team is the one with more points, or most victories, or least defeats, or the team that leads the league, then Chelsea is the best team.
“In any point of analysis, any criteria you can find, we are the best team or the second best team. Simple as that.”
Jose Mourinho concluded by aiming a swipe at Arsenal in his post-match press conference, insisting their 10-year wait for a Premier League title is boring.
