Jose Mourinho believes six teams are in title contention, including this weekend’s opponents, Manuel Pellegrini's Manchester City.

"He has the most important thing which is an unbelievable squad of players," said Mourinho, who also maintains Manchester United are still in the running, despite already being eight points behind leaders Arsenal.

"They had lots of difficult matches and other teams, they didn't," added Mourinho.

"They played already against Chelsea, they played against Liverpool, they played against City.

"There will come a time and a period of fixtures where they will win consecutive matches and where other teams will lose points and where they will close the gap and where they will put themselves in a position to fight for the title."
