Winning FA Cup is very to Chelsea – Mourinho
TVC E. José Mourinho will return to Stamford Bridge for a second time this season to face his former club, Chelsea. Manchester United, the FA Cup holders, were hammered 4-0 earlier this season at Stamford Bridge in a Premier League game. Mourinho praised his side’s display at Blackburn on Sunday but expressed concerned over a potential fixture pile-up before the FA Cup game at Chelsea.
“No reaction,” Mourinho reacted to the FA cup draws. “I have to play Saint-Etienne, I have to play the EFL Cup final, I have to play hopefully another opponent in the Europa League. “I have to fight for a top-four position in the Premier League. I have so many things to think about. “Chelsea can only think about that because they are champions and they have nothing else to fight for.
“So the FA Cup I believe is something important for them. The match is in one month’s time, so I don’t want to think about it. We’re going to fight for the FA Cup, but the League Cup is the one we have a 50 per cent possibility to win. And the next one is to get a result against St Etienne on Wednesday and be in the last 16 of the Europa League.”
Red Devils have not won at Chelsea since October 2012 and Mourinho was humiliated on his last visit there in October. Antonio Conte’s side subjected Mourinho to his heaviest Premier League defeat.
