Mourinho, speaking on Friday, insists that his current club are a Champions League team and doesn't see them as inferior to his old employers.
“First of all I'm not looking to that fight, I don't know mathematically what is possible for them," began the Portuguese.
“I think they play the last game is between them [Leicester and United] and I don't know if things can be decided there.
"I don't know if Chelsea is in a safe position – I don't think they are. I think they still are in this fight.
“If Manchester United does it, they will do it by playing very well in the second part of the season and when you play well you deserve, and on top of that everybody knows that they were a bit lucky.
“More than one time, luck that others have not had.
"We didn't have, for example, that luck."
