Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that he would swap his side’s place at the top of the Premier League with Manchester City, according to ESPN.

The Blues lead the Premier League and hold a six point advantage over Manchester City but they have two games in hand with a superior goal difference over their title rivals.

The Portuguese boss claimed that City had their title future in their own hands and are in the best position going into the final stretch of the Premier League race.

Mourinho admitted that Manuel Pellegrini was the better off, despite his team being in fourth place, as winning their games in hand would propel them above the Blues on goal difference.

"I prefer to have the destiny in my hands, and only City have destiny in their hands," Mourinho said. "If I win every game until the end of the season, all 10 - which we won't - maybe we are not champions.

"If they [City] win all 12 games they have, they are champions. They have their destiny in their hands."

The London club extended their lead to top of the table with a 3-1 away win over Fulham at the weekend, whilst Manchester City claimed League Cup glory on Sunday and could potentially claim a quadruple of trophies.
