Jose Mourinho believes even the celebrations are over ahead of Chelsea’s final game of the season with Sunderland.
The Barclays Premier League champions will be presented with the trophy after Sunday’s match and parade it, and the Capital One Cup won in March, through west London on Monday.
Sunderland avoided relegation with one match to spare and Chelsea won the title with three games to go, so there is little to play for at Stamford Bridge.
“The motivation is to be the champions for us, and for them it’s not to be relegated,” Mourinho said.
“We are already celebrating our title. They are already celebrating these last fantastic weeks they have had with good results.
“We are over – probably them too – with celebrations.
“Now there is a last match. Obviously we want to win. I also believe they want to win. That’s normal.”
Despite Chelsea’s commanding success this season, Mourinho knows a top-four place and Champions League qualification has to be the first target for his side next term.
“The most important thing I learned was last season, when I realised that after being away from England for a few years – five, three in Madrid, two at Inter – was to realise it’s more dangerous to be a contender,” Mourinho added.
“It’s more dangerous to be a title-contender manager because you start the season and you don’t know what is waiting for you.
“You can be champions, you can qualify for the Champions League, you can even be out of Champions League, out of the top four, because at this moment in England there’s five, six teams from the top who are really strong.”
