Soccer – Mourinho not giving up on title

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho still believes the side can win the Premier League this season, despite slipping eight points adrift of rivals Manchester City. The Portuguese tactician suffered another defeat against his former club Chelsea on Sunday with Alvaro Morata scoring the only goal of the game in the second half at Stamford Bridge. City had earlier defeated Arsenal 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium to open up a sizeable lead at the top of the table going into the international break, while they are now 1/6 with bet365 to win the Premier League. However, Mourinho is banking on the return of several key players from injury to give his United side a boost going into the New Year. He said: "I hope, I feel, I think, I wish that in the busy period of late November, December, beginning of January, I think probably we are going to be at our maximum strength, with (Paul) Pogba back, Ibra (Zlatan Ibrahimovic), Marcus Rojo back. Probably we can be on a high."
