Mourinho insists Manchester United’s title challenge is unlikely, Moyes begs to differ

By on January 19, 2014

Manchester United are 14 points behind leaders Arsenal, 13 behind Manchester City and 12 points off Chelsea. Pray for Moyes, indeed.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho told reporters:  ‘I don’t think David will be upset if I say the reality,  it is a 14-point difference, and 13 and 12. Can they recover to one of these teams? They can. But to three of them? It needs three teams to almost collapse.’

Manchester United’s defence of the title is, effectively, over. Sir Alex Ferguson was in the stands to watch Chelsea’s Samuel Eto’o  grab a hat-trick in a 3-1 win against last season’s Premier League champions. Moyes, the deluded optimist in some fans eyes, is refusing to give up.

‘What we won’t do is throw in the towel until we can’t get there.’ Moyes said hopefully. ‘The job is to try to finish first. I was hoping to win more and be competing a bit more than we’ve been but that will come.’

Sorry, Moyes, but it’s over.
