Chelsea boss Mourinho mocks Arsenal failure

Jose Mourinho responded to Arsenal fans describing his Chelsea side as boring by making light of their inability to win the Premier League.

"You know, I think boring is 10 years without a title. That's very boring," Mourinho said.

"You support the club and you're waiting, waiting, waiting for so many years without a Premier League title, so that's very boring.

"But maybe they were not singing to us. Maybe, when you want to win a game and you're at home and you take your number nine (Olivier Giroud) off, maybe the home fans want more.

"Maybe they want to play Giroud and (Danny) Welbeck together up front to try to win the game."

Terry: Chelsea are very close to title win

Chelsea captain John Terry hailed a "big step" as the Blues drew 0-0 at Arsenal to move closer to the Premier League title.

A shut-out against the only side with realistic hopes of catching them means Chelsea need just six points from their remaining five games to secure the title.

Terry made that much clear with his passionate celebrations at the end of the game, and he told Sky Sports 1: "It's a big step to where we want to go.

"It's not done mathematically, but it's a big step and the big thing today was not to let Arsenal gain points.

"We're almost there. We have a tough game on Wednesday, Leicester are fighting for points, but the job is in our hands."

On the day he was named in the PFA Premier League team of the year, Terry added: "Arsenal made it tough, they're a good side. They've been in great form and have world-class players."
