Despite Chelsea’s bad start to the 2015/16 Premier League campaign, the manager Jose Mourinho still has his eyes set on top four spot by May.
The London Blues are in the 16th place in the Premier League table having played 15 games, winning a total of four, loosing eight and drawn three.
Chelsea who are the current Premier League Champions have only 15 points and are just a point above relegation zone and are 18 points below new league leaders Arsenal and 14 point below fourth place Manchester United.
Should Chelsea loose against Leicester on Monday, that will pile up Mourinho’s misery, making it the 9th game they have lost this Premier League season.
Nevertheless, Mourinho insists that Chelsea will not give up on top four spot until its statistically impossible.
“It’s not easy any more for the top clubs to win three or four in a row. We can get four or five consecutive victories and because no-one is doing that,” he said.
“We have the chance to shorten the lead and dream of a great finish to finish fourth. While it is mathematical possible we try.”
The Portuguese manager also praised the Chelsea fans who have stood behind him through the dark times.
“The fans are being absolutely incredible with us. I don’t even know how to react to how nice they are,” Mourinho said.
“When they sing my name, I am a little embarrassed. “When you are champion, when you are winning matches you show your emotion.”
“I know for sure Chelsea fans don’t have a memory problem. If they did, they don’t treat me like this.”
“Their support is more than I could expect after such a bad season. I know that last season we were champions but this season has been really bad.”
