Chelsea F.C. manager Jose Mourinho’s preferred silence on the eve of the high-profile game against Manchester City F.C. made for blessed relief after his recent outbursts. Mourinho has appeared to be looking for fights in empty rooms, always a sign a big game is approaching.

His ‘infamy, infamy, they’ve all got it infamy’ theatrics have always served him pretty well, mind.

As for Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini, he’s so weary of it he sighed on Friday: “I don’t talk about Jose Mourinho”.

The Chilean is the one under pressure but he said if Man City lose again and fall eight points behind Chelsea, we should remember his team have made up that sort of deficit on more than one previous occasion.

Perhaps that is not the message to be sending out to his Middle East paymasters. Surely, he has to go for it. Eight points behind and the hype will be right – it probably is a title decider.
