London: Jose Mourinho is ready to crank up the pressure in a bid to bring out the killer instinct in his Chelsea players like he did with Didier Drogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to reports.

According to the Mirror, the Blues` manager said he is still working on the mentality of his squad to instil the ruthless edge that marks out champions.

With Mourinho insistent the title race is a six-way contest, he said he believes the manager who masters the mind games with his players will eventually come out on top, the report said.

The Portuguese has also turned up the heat on Manuel Pellegrini`s Manchester City , insisting they should be clear favourites for the title, the report added.
