Next Match: at home to Crystal Palace, December 14
Jose Mourinho wants his Chelsea side to prepare for the Champions League knock-out stages by going on a winning run in the Premier League during the busy festive season. A 1-0 victory over Steaua Bucharest sent Chelsea through as Group E winners but Mourinho wants to put that to one side now. "The next stage is last 16," he said. "Wait for the result of the draw, forget about the Champions League until 2014, February, March and let's work to improve the team and to get results in the English competitions. And when we get results in the English competitions we are preparing ourselves for the next stage of the Champions League."
