The Blues – should they beat West Ham United on Wednesday night – will go eight points clear at the top, and given the wealth of experience in the side, Mourinho’s men could be out of sight.
Pellegrini, however, insists that he is feeling no pressure as the conclusion to the season draws ever closer, saying, “The only pressure is when I don’t see my team playing like I want it to,” the 61-year-old was quoted by CaughtOffside as saying.
“Never when I sign a contract do they tell me I have to win the title every year, or five titles in five years.
“Only one team wins and that doesn’t mean all the others are failures. There are different ways to analyse a season, the title is important but not the only important thing.”
