Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has played down the significance of Sunday's Premier League showdown with Manchester City.

"We have to play our game," said the Portuguese boss. "We are going to play our game and let's see if our game is enough to win against them.

"I just play every game the same way. We want to win. To win is good, to lose is not good.

"In this moment, with the way the Premier League is going week after week, no result will put a team in a great situation, no result will put a team in a difficult situation.

"Every weekend somebody loses points. Some weekends more than one of the top teams lose points.

"The league is hard, so I don't think at this stage, mid-October, one game is going to be crucial.

"We have tests every week. It's a big team, yes, it's a very good team, but every match is a test and every match is three points."
