Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is confident that his side will get their season “back on track” and push to reclaim their Premier League title.

The Blues have endured a disastrous opening month to the new campaign by their standards with just four points on the board from as many games and two defeats inflicted on them by Manchester City and Crystal Palace respectively.

It has subsequently left the Londoners trailing City by eight points as Manuel Pellegrini’s early leaders boast a 100% record and have yet to concede a goal in their opening four games.

The international break has given Chelsea a chance to regroup and lick their wounds before the campaign resumes with a tough Premier League trip to Everton on Saturday lunch-time.

Mourinho is adamant that he has not lost his desire to collect more silverware and he warned their rivals that the side are determined to embark on a winning run.

Speaking in his role as an ambassador for the UN’s World Food Programme ahead of the Rugby World Cup, he said: “At the moment, we are losing matches and not getting results, but step by step we are going to be back on track.

“Three months ago we won the title and every success I have, I want more.”

Chelsea are 5.50 to retain their Premier League title, while they can be backed at 1.95 to win at Everton on Saturday. The Toffees are 4.00 to win and the draw is 3.50.
