This coming weekend sees the start of what looks pretty set as a three-horse run-in.
With Arsenal's title hopes ended by a thrashing at Stamford Bridge and the subsequent stutter against Swansea, all eyes turn to Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool.
Mourinho's side is the only one of the three kicking off in the traditional 3 p.m. Saturday slot with a trip south of the river to Crystal Palace, likely to be a tricky side to break down.
City look to have a much tougher away day with the Saturday evening kick-off at Arsenal. Arsene Wenger is still looking for the first win of his second thousand games with the club.
Liverpool host the other lot from north London, with Tottenham heading to Anfield on Sunday, something not likely to trouble Brendan Rodgers' side.
Verdict for the week: a fixture list harder on City than on the other two.
