Chelsea Boss Downplays 7 Points Lead

Jose Mourinho does not feel Chelsea’s seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League is a significant advantage in the title race.
The Blues beat Aston Villa 2-1 on Saturday, while second-placed Manchester City drew with Hull.
“In another country, I would say it is fantastic,” said Mourinho. “In this country, I would say it is nothing. There are 14 games to go and 42 points still to play for. Every game is difficult, and anything can happen.”
Mourinho insisted he was not shocked to see City only draw 1-1 with Hull, who were in the relegation zone at the start of the day, but said he was happy that his side’s title hopes are in their own hands.
“I am surprised with nothing here, in this country every team can take points so, no, I am not surprised,” he explained.
