LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Chelsea head into the midweek fixtures six-points ahead in the English Premier League points standings.

There are six games in the EPL on Tuesday, with another four games on the schedule for Wednesday night.

Chelsea are on 33 points from 13 games and lead defending champions Manchester City, who are on 27 points from their 13 games.

Jose Mourinho’s side will take on Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday, the same night Man City travel to face Sunderland and Portugal coach hopes his team can continue to do what they need to do to win the league.

Mourinho also reveals that despite the gap at the top being cut slightly, following his team’s failure to beat Sunderland at the weekend, nothing has changed.

“The team reaction has been Normal,” the former Real Madrid boss said. “Normal. What do you want the team to do or feel when the team is doing a perfect season?

“Top of the league in the Premier League, top of the group in the Champions League, quarter-finals in the Capital One Cup, not losing a match in four months.

“The team has to feel very, very well. When the defeat arrives, we have to feel the same way.

“We are doing things very, very well and it’s not a bad result, when a bad result arrives, that is going to change our self-belief and self-esteem.”

Third place Southampton (26pts) and sixth placed Arsenal (20pts) will also face-off on Wednesday night, with the Gunners hoping to close the six-point gap between the two sides. The Saints will be looking to bounce back from the 3-0 defeat suffered to Manchester City over the weekend.

In action on Tuesday, fourth-placed Manchester United, on 22 points, take on Stoke City at Old Trafford hoping to extend their three game winning streak.

The bottom three in the table standing continues to be Queens Park Rangers (11pts), Burnley (11pts) and Leicester City (10pts).

A midweek victory for any of these side could them moving out of the relegation zone, with the likes of 14 Crystal Palace, West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa and Hull City all in danger of dropping into the red zone before the games on the weekend.
