FA Cup: Chelsea boss welcomes Manchester City match up


The FA Cup draws for the fifth round were announced, and most EPL teams were paired up against one another. Manchester City and Chelsea are pitted against one another and both are currently in the top three in the EPL table. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is welcoming the opportunity to face Man City.

“It’s good, that’s good,” Mourinho said, via Sky Sports. “Our priority for the season is to improve and the best way to improve is difficult tests.

“We play against the best team twice in 15 days, in the best stadium, in the stadium where they win every week, smash everyone, score four, five goals every game even against the big teams like Arsenal, Tottenham, United.

“It’s a good thing for us. We are playing very well in my opinion. It’s good for us; if we lose, we lose against the best. If we don’t lose, it’s fantastic.”
