Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes he is getting better at every aspect of football management as his side closes in on the Premier League title.

The Blues travel to QPR on Sunday seven points clear of Arsenal with a game in hand and just eight matches left to play this season.

Speaking to the Telegraph, the Portuguese boss said:

I think I have a problem, which is I'm getting better at everything related to my job since I started. I feel better and better.

But there is one point where I cannot change: when I face the media, I am never a hypocrite.
