Jose Mourinho’s woeful title defence last term remains in the forefront of many blues supporters.

The Portuguese tactician was sacked in December 2015 by the Chelsea management just seven months after he lifted the Premier League trophy at the Stamford Bridge club.

And due to their failings in the first half of the season under Jose Mourinho, the west London club managed just a 10th-place finish.

Chelsea eventually brought in former Juventus manager Antonio Conte who had been incredibly doing well at the club.

And since Chelsea aren’t in either the Champions League or the Europa League this season, the new boss Antonio Conte has benefited from the lack of European football at the club.

Conte’s Chelsea players have been able to recover and put their full attention towards regaining the title from Leicester City.

And Jose Mourinho, now Manchester United boss, has repeatedly complained about his side’s hectic schedule.

While Chelsea hold a 10-point lead at the top of the table and are favourites to win the title this season, Jose Mourinho has repeatedly complained about his side’s hectic schedule.

It appears the combination of EFL Cup, FA Cup, Europa League and Premier League games has stretched the red devils to the limit.

And as Jose Mourinho and his men travels to Chelsea on Monday night for their FA Cup quarter-final clash, Man United’s fitness will again be tested.

While Conte and his men have a seven-day break prior to the game, the Old Trafford club play in Russia tonight against FC Rostov.

Instances as this has seen Mourinho hit out at the easy schedules of rivals at the top of the Premier League.

The former Real Madrid boss has also accused Chelsea of being defensive, but Antonio Conte has refrained from biting back at the various jibes.

The October’s 4-0 win at Stamford Bridge  caused further tension between the coaches as the Portuguese said the Italian’s behaviour was humiliating.

Conte has however continued to restrain himself throughout the season, and The Telegraph has revealed how.

The former Juventus manager enjoyed great success in his first season at Chelsea with a title on the cardsIt is said the comments from Jose Mourinho have prompted smiles from those inside Chelsea.

Those at the club feel it is ironic from the Portuguese coach and point to the fact Chelsea’s fixture list is so light due to his disastrous leadership last season.

Antonio Conte has managed to build Chelsea back up to title contenders, while Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United sit in sixth.
