Soccer – Mourinho targets shock triumph

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has not ruled his side out of winning the Champions League this season despite their patchy form. The Blues finished as Group G winners after beating Porto 2-0 on Wednesday and will be involved in Monday's draw for the last-16 of the competition. However, the reigning Premier League champions have struggled domestically and are 14th in the table following Saturday's 1-0 home loss to Bournemouth, their eighth defeat in 15 matches this term. Mourinho said: "When we won it with Porto we were not candidates. When we won it with Inter we were not candidates. "When we were candidates with Real Madrid we lost two semi-finals, and we lost two semi-finals with Chelsea as well. So let's see, you never know." Chelsea, 16/1 with bet365 to win the Champions League outright this season, can be backed at 5/4 to beat Leicester City in the Premier League on Monday.
