Jose Mourinho has told his Chelsea players to keep calm and carry on as they close in on the title.

Chelsea is six points clear with a game in hand and nine games left to play.

However, the team has lost some of its early season dominance and superiority especially on its own patch.

Mourinho’s men have won just one of its last seven Stamford Bridge games, giving the chasing pack the tiniest glimmer of hope that the title race isn’t yet done and dusted.

But striker Diego Costa, hoping to shake off a hamstring injury to face Stoke on Saturday, said: “Our manager has won different leagues and knows how to manage a situation like this.

“Like the great manager he is, he has told us what we need to do now, which is just to stay calm.

“He’s right because everything depends on us now. We know that the Premier League is complicated.

“It’s not easy so we know we have to improve. We all need to dig in and give something extra because we have this title in our hands and we can’t let it slip away.”
