Jose targets new record
14 May 2007 - 07:58:45
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was pleased to see his side equal Liverpool's record of 63 games unbeaten at home in the top-flight, despite the Blues' campaign ending with a 1-1 draw with Everton.
A share of the record came at the expense of an injury to midfielder John Obi Mikel, with Mourinho pleased with the resolution shown by his players.
He said: "The positive thing is the record because we can say it has been three consecutive years without defeat at home in the Premiership.
"We can say that we share the record with a historic Liverpool team. We are very proud of that. We have the chance next season by not losing the first game at home to have the record just for us.
"But to share it with such a Liverpool team is already great, but to have it to ourselves, I think it will be fantastic. We will become a team with a stamp in English football. We have that chance.
"We finished the Premiership with some pride and honour. The last game we lost in the league was in January. So we fought for four months without losing another game in many difficult circumstances.
"But for winners the feeling is not good because we didn't win. I am happy we are not happy. It shows our nature."
