Jose Mourinho: It is 'impossible' for Chelsea to match Arsenal's unbeaten season
CHELSA manager Jose Mourinho believes going a full Premier League season unbeaten is impossible.
The Blues are yet to lose after 13 games of the campaign and are in sight of replicating Arsenal's 'Invincibles' class of 2003/04.
They have drawn just three league ties all campaign - including 1-1 results at Manchester City and Manchester United - winning the other 10.
And Mourinho outlined his desire to continue winning games rather than battle out draws ahead of Chelsea's clash with Tottenham tonight.
He said: "One thing is that I don't think it's possible (to complete a season unbeaten). The other thing is that we are not playing for that.
"If (against Spurs) we have a 0-0 with 20 minutes to go, we are not going to play for the 0-0 to be undefeated after 21 matches. No way.
"If you play for that, if that is one objective, maybe you draw so many matches, you don't take risks to try and win matches. You are happy just to be undefeated.
"If you get 10 draws, you get 10 points. If you win five and lose five, you make 15 points.
"We are going to play matches to win. And, sometimes, we will lose.
"I'd prefer 15 points and lost matches than 10 points and being undefeated."
Arsenal drew 12 of their 38 fixtures in the 2003/04 season.
