Jose Mourinho admits he is relishing one of the most open Premier League title races in years after watching his Chelsea side move up to second in the table.

The Blues moved to within two points of leaders Arsenal thanks to a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge and have the chance to move ahead of the Gunners when they travel to Emirates Stadium on 23 December.

And Mourinho insists that there are still at least six teams in with a shout of winning the English top-flight title this term.

“Everybody is there,” Mourinho told Sky Sports. “Arsenal is top, we are two points behind them [and] City is one point behind us. Tomorrow [Sunday] Liverpool and Tottenham are fighting also for a position.

“Everton is also in the same group. Man United, if they win tomorrow, close the gap in relation to Arsenal.

“Everybody is there [and] there is big emotion. I think people in this country have to enjoy it.

“For us [managers] there is of course more pressure because when you win you go up and when you lose you go down. The situation is hard for every team.”
