Mourinho’s men stretched their unbeaten start to a club-record 17 games with victory at Liverpool on Saturday to leave them four points clear at the top of the table.
The French manager, after watching his Arsenal side lose further ground on the leaders following a 2-1 defeat at Swansea City on Sunday, conceded that Mourinho’s men are already looking like the eventual champions.
According to BBC Sport, he said:
If they keep that up nobody will touch them. It doesn’t look like anybody is capable of challenging them at the moment.
Look at the season and Chelsea are on course for 105 points. Look at the number of points they have today and if they keep that up nobody will touch them, that’s for sure.
They have had a good start and as long as you don’t lose you don’t question yourself. Maybe a little bit more extra spirit in the team helps them when it gets tight.
The Gunners’ disappointing week got a fitting end at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday night, where another lead was blown in three minutes to fall to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Swansea City.
