Chelsea’s win over Leicester this evening means, they need just three points to be named and crowned champions of England.
Chelsea came from behind to secure a 3-1 win against Leicester. Goals from Drogba, Terry and Ramires, propelling them far closer to the trophy they’ve worked so hard for.
Mourinho, who manages Chelsea strongly believes every team wants to be like them. He praised the players for a job well done against Leicester.
A win against Crystal Palace on Sunday at the Stamford Bridge, will ensure Chelsea has won the trophy. A feat they last achieved in 2010.
“I think it’s phenomenal what [the players] are doing, top of the league since day one, it’s not easy,” he told Sky Sports.
“To play against a team that is having a fantastic run, winning 12 points out of 12, playing at home, [with] big enthusiasm, self-confidence, to be losing at half-time, come in the second half and to do it the way my boys did it, I think it’s fantastic.
“I know what I feel in relation to the work in the last two years, and with the work these boys are doing since pre-season day one, so I don’t need other people to recognise what we are.
“I know exactly what we are and I think, in a very pragmatic way, we are what every team would like to be.”
Chelsea has been at the top of the table since the end of August, with only two losses marring their exquisite run. Mourinho has implored the fans to come through for Chelsea on Sunday.
He added: “I think it was a very good performance, a very good victory, and now I think Stamford Bridge instead of celebrating, Stamford Bridge has to be ready to push the team next Sunday.
“We need to win and we need Stamford Bridge not to be celebrating the title, because we do not have the title, we need Stamford Bridge to push us strong to the three points we still need.”
