Jose Mourinho feels his experience as Chelsea manager two seasons ago proves Manchester United can still win the Premier League title. United impressed in a 4-0 Europa League victory over Feyenoord on Thursday and resume domestic action at West Ham on Sunday, heading into the weekend in sixth place, nine points shy of Chelsea at the summit.
Mourinho was quick to point to the mid-season comeback from Manchester City that deniedChelsea, before the Blues marched to glory in 2014-15.
“When I won the last title 18 years ago – sorry 18 months I ago – I had a 10-point advantage and then in one month I had the same points as Manchester City,” he said.
“We lost 10 points at the end of December or the beginning of January. Then we recovered and won that title.”
