Jose Mourinho says Chelsea have taken a step closer to the Premier League title after their last-gasp win at QPR.
Rangers looked to have held on what could have been a vital point in their push to avoid relegation, but Cesc Fabregas’ 88th-minute winner claimed a 1-0 win for the league leaders, who re-opened a seven-point lead at the top of the table.
Victory at Loftus Road means Chelsea need just 12 points from their remaining games to claim a fourth Premier League title, and Mourinho believes the title is now within touching distance.
“The title is one step closer,” he told Sky Sports. “We need three victories and two draws so our situation is good. Championships are pure mathematics.
“It’s one less match that we need to win so it’s a very important step after a very difficult match.
“Our best quality was to control the game very well and to stop our opponents scoring.
They are a team who can score goals, they have dangerous attacking players.
“They play dangerously, direct and objective for the two strikers so it that was our best quality.
We kept calm and tried to play against a team who were very well organised defensively, they did fantastic work to keep the clean sheet.
Chris Ramsey was disappointed that a lapse of concentration has once again cost QPR points in their 1-0 defeat to Chelsea.
