Mourinho: Chelsea not in title race

The Blues boss insists his side will only be focused on their next match rather than their rivals at the top of the table following Saturday's shock defeat to Aston Villa
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has again insisted that his side are not in the title race following Saturday's defeat to Aston Villa.

13/8 Chelsea are 13/8 with William Hill to win the title
The west Londoners slipped to defeat in the Midlands as Fabian Delph's winner stopped the Blues, who had both Willian and Ramires sent off prior to Mourinho being sent to the stands himself, from extending their lead at the top of the table.

But despite the fact that his side are six points ahead of second-placed Manchester City, Mourinho reiterated that he doesn't see his side in the mix to be crowned Premier League champions.

He told reporters: "We are not in the title race. We are in a match race. We play every match. We try to win, we think we can win.

"We give everything to win. Sometimes you do, sometimes you don't. But that's our race; improve and try our best every match."

Mourinho also expressed his frustration with Chris Foy after being sent off in the aftermath of Ramires' red card, insisting he asked for "five seconds" to discuss the dismissal with the referee.
