London: Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has refused to rule Manchester United out of the Premier League title chase, according to reports.

According to Metro.co.uk, Mourinho saw his side pull eight points clear of David Moyes` men on Wednesday, with Everton earning victory at Old Trafford.

However, despite United trailing pacesetters Arsenal by 12 points, Mourinho insists it is too soon to dismiss their chances of retaining the title, the report said.

He said that if it were another club, he would say that it is impossible but with United, he could not say that because of the potential of the team and the coach of the club.

He added that United were a calm team who support their manager and nobody touches their manager, and if they don`t win this season, they could win next season.
