Title race will be closer next season


Thirteen points clear at the top, victory over Crystal Palace will see Chelsea win their fourth Premier League title, but first for five


And Mourinho believes it would be almost impossible for his side to dominate the league next season.

“At this moment, it’s very difficult in the Premier League for a team to be dominant,” he said.

“This is not Germany with Bayern (Munich). This is not Switzerland with Basel. This is not Scotland with Celtic.

“It’s even more difficult to dominate than before. How can you speak about domination when everyone knows what will happen next summer?

“Arsenal have a phenomenal squad. Thierry Henry said they need four top-class players. Give Arsenal four top-class players and I think they will again be the ‘Invincibles’.

“Man United have a phenomenal squad, including the most expensive player in the history of the Premier League (Angel Di Maria), who is not playing.

“They are a club where financial fair play doesn’t make a huge difference for them and they will invest hugely again in the summer.

“Man City have done phenomenally, winning two titles in three years, and people say they will invest hugely.

“Liverpool is fighting for the title for many years. So next year it will be even more difficult for everyone than this year.” – DPA-ANA
