Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is angry over the fixtures list after victory against Stoke City.

Chelsea won 3-0, but Mourinho is upset seeing teams around them with games in hand.

The Portuguese said: "The situation is the same. The table is again fake. The table is again with lots of matches in hand.

"You look to the top part of the table and, some teams, they have more matches than others. You look to the relegation area and it's exactly the same.

"In the top of the league we cannot say we need X points to be champions.

"If you look at the relegation area, Fulham or Cardiff or Norwich, they cannot say 'we need this number of points to survive', because they don't know, because Sunderland have matches in hand.

"This, in the best league in the world, I don't think is the best image we are giving and it's not the best situation.

"To play matches in hand in the last week of the season, I don't think is adapted to this top football country."
