Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho refused to talk up their title chances after a 3-0 win over Newcastle United.

Mourinho again downplayed his side's title chances after Eden Hazard's hat-trick earned a 3-0 win over Newcastle which took the Blues to the top of the Premier League standings.

"It's time to kill the horses," Mourinho said.

"We are playing well. People individually are in a good moment, the team is getting results and we are top of the league.

"That is something that we can't hide, but I say the same and I feel the same. I don't change."

When told that bookmakers had made Chelsea title favourites, Mourinho said: "I don't bet."
