Jose Mourinho is “expecting” Chelsea to beat West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Blues host the Baggies in west London looking to maintain their place at the top of the Premier League table.

I expect to win, but I expect a very very difficult match

Mourinho’s men are yet to lose a game in the top flight this term and are unbeaten in 19 games in all competitions.

And although the Portuguese coach is predicting a difficult game against West Brom, he is expecting to watch his side take three points.

“I expect to win, but I expect a very, very difficult match,” said Mourinho.

“They have a good team, they can give us a very difficult match. They know that they can get a result against us, because they got it in the past.”

On the day bookmaker Paddy Power paid out on Chelsea winning this season’s title after just 11 games, Mourinho also insisted that he is only focusing on his own team’s situation.

“I don’t compare ourselves with others,” he said.

“We have a situation now, but our distance to our opponents tomorrow can increase or decrease. I compare us with the next opponent.

“In this moment I don’t think about being champion, I just think about winning West Brom.”
