Mourinho is the master at presenting his side as the underdog but his team are the ones to beat at the moment.
After facing Tottenham on Saturday Night Football this weekend, the Blues host Arsenal and then travel to Liverpool at the end of April in what could be a title decider. But other than that, seven of their last nine games are against teams in the bottom half of the table.
Not many teams have found a nice balance like that Manuel Pellegrini doesn't seem to have found the right person to partner Vincent Kompany at Man City, while Liverpool would win the title if they had Chelsea's backline.
Because of the system Chelsea play, with one up, midfielders have always had to chip in with goals and that's not a lot different from before. Yes, they haven't got Didier Drogba but they've still got an incredibly strong squad.
in the title race but his Chelsea team are now in the box seat to win the Premier League.
That's the match up everyone's looking at because if Hazard can get Walker into difficult positions Tottenham could be exposed.
Also in Chelsea's advantage is their run in.
With City able to get back on level terms with Chelsea if they win their games in hand, this title race is such a tight one to call.
The latter two could almost play centre back as well, if needed. They're very strong and don't bomb on like full backs at some other sides. They're defenders first and attackers second.
Third placed Arsenal will also be hoping to get involved, although they seem to be having one disappointment after the other at the moment, with their frustrating defeat at Stoke being followed by Jack Wilshere's injury while on England duty.
When you look at those fixtures you have to say it's in Chelsea's hands to a certain extent.
But, in saying that, they've not been a team reliant on strikers they've always had a Lampard or, now, a Hazard, who can get 15 20 goals a year, which makes up if the forwards aren't in form and scoring.
DefenceTheir back four, in particular, is as good as anybody's.
Kyle Walker to be fit and it will be a brilliant battle between him and Eden Hazard, two flying machines.
Tim won't want to get outnumbered in midfield and can always turn to the Spaniard, who scored the winner against Cardiff last week, if Spurs are still looking for a goal later in the game.
However, as I said in last week's column, Liverpool mustn't be discounted from the title race.
One thing which may turn it around is if City go out of the Champions League to Barcelona and Chelsea progress. That will bring added pressures to the Chelsea squad but for now they are so well placed and have good players in good form.
Mourinho has settled on Terry and Gary Cahill as his centre back partnership, with Cesar Azpilicueta and Branislav Ivanovic as full backs.

Chelsea have always been in my equation and I never thought 'they can't win this league' because they've got the likes of Eden Hazard, Oscar, Frank Lampard and John Terry. I laugh when I hear Mourinho Omega Seamaster Co-axial Chronometer 600m/2000ft say they aren't ready to win it. He was caught out by French TV saying he hasn't got a striker and that's the only weakness in this team.
He's got Emmanuel Adebayor, who scored there last year, back in form and I think he'll probably go with him up front on his own and move Roberto Soldado back to the bench.
