Joe Cole says winning the Premiership this season would out-do the titles he won under former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

"If we won the league it would be a bigger achievement than when we won it two years on the run, because we have kept our belief even when we were so far behind," the England man said in The News of the World.

"We have had a lot of adversity this season but we could still come out with a trophy or two.

"I now believe we are the biggest threat to Manchester United.

"People would have laughed off our chances a few weeks ago when we were ten points behind Arsenal, but we have picked them off and now we've got out noses in front of them."
