Chelsea’s loss to Newcastle on Saturday and a previous 0-0 draw with Tottenham has reduced the Blues’ lead aat the top of the EPL from eight points to three points and now stand the risk of been toppled should they lose any of the remaining games before the end of 2014
We are still the best – Chelsea coach
Chelsea's unbeaten record of 14 games was broken by Alan Pardew side, Newcastle as they defeated the blues at the St James' Park
Mourinho believes that the team is still the best to win the title for the current campaign despite the drop in points.
"We are top of the league.
"Nobody has done better than us. Everyone would like to be in our position. So we are more than fine. We are better than anybody else.
"I will back them [the players] to bounce back. For people like me who have been in football for so long you have to accept this anomaly. To come here and be better than our opponents and lose, that is football.
"I don't say my team is the best, I say my team is top of the league and at this moment nobody has the same points we have. Because of that at the moment we're the best team in the Premier League.
"The players are not jumping with happiness but they are accepting the defeat as part of the game. They tried everything, were unlucky and are not happy with that, but that is football."
Chelsea host Hull City next on Saturday, December 13 in their next EPL fixture.
