After the 3-2 win against Bournemouth yesterday, Mourinho said: “When I arrived we were 12 points behind the last Champions League position and I didn't want to think about it, I just wanted to play matches.

“I think we were eight or nine from a Europa League position and I said if we thought about it too much we would be depressed because we want to play European football next season.

“So, don't get depressed, play game after game and see what is going to happen.

“Now the distance is smaller, we won two matches, we are going into a period with lots of matches, the Christmas period is match, match, match, match. So you have the chance of both.

“You have the chance to break down, we have the chance to put pressure on the opponent.

“We play Chelsea at the end of December, if the game was tomorrow, we would play them with six points difference, it would be a fantastic situation to play them, but we play them in the end of December.

“We have to keep close, as close as possible.

“But we have a lot to work and a lot to improve.”
