While the Blues chief insisted he will not park the bus in a bid to keep Manuel Pellegrini's free-scoring side at bay, the Portuguese maintained that some things have not changed.
Mourinho said: "No, I don't want to be popular. I want to win, more than ever.
"It doesn't matter how many times I did it in the past, more than ever I want to win.
"I'm enjoying this process - a process that will end in winning.
"If my relation with the media and referees is fine, and if I have no reasons to be fighting with other managers and other people, I don't know why I should look for that. No problem."
