The youngster - who is out on loan at Milton Keynes Dons - is the top scorer in English football after notching 12 goals already this term.
"If I did, say, get 20 goals before Christmas, which is some way off, I am on 12, then maybe Mourinho might have a look and give me a few goes on the bench but if not I just want to push on," he told Sky Sports News.
Bamford is in his second spell at the League One outfit and the youngster believes he is coming on leaps and bounds after making the step up to first team level.
"I think it is important as I was only playing 21 football at Chelsea," he added.
"Compared to League One there are more teams playing football so it is a bit different and when you step up there is a difference in physicality.
"I felt I was strong enough but there was a lot of development to do and I think since I came back this year you can see a difference."
