Mourinho's 'P' letter superstition explained

Chelsea 2016 treble? Mourinho's 2-2 score and 'P' letter superstition

August 24, 2015 By Oscar Rojas
The Portuguese boss was told in a recent press conference that he hadn't been able to defeat any EPL manager who's last name started with the letter 'P'. Is The Special One considering this fact to 'promise' a treble?

Even when things are going Jose Mourinho's way, there's a superstitious angle to it. After a very successful season with the Blues, which saw The Special One winning the EPL and the Capital One Cup, the start of the current tournament has handed Mou mixed results, barely winning their first match of the year against West Brom on Sunday.

During a recent press conference, a journalist asked Mourinho if he was afraid of those managers whose last names started with the letter "P". At first glance, Mourinho seemed to be annoyed by the question, and here are the stats that support the fact.

Prior to yesterday's game, these were Mourinho's score lines against any team with a manager with the letter 'P'.

Some sources even mocked the fact.

Pellegrini, Pocchetino, Pardew, Poyet & Pulis have all denied the Blues a victory under Mourinho.

Mourinho and the 2-2 score: Chelsea going for the 2015/16 treble?

Moments after refusing to state his belief on such a statistic, the Portuguese manager baffled those in attendance by stating his team was getting ready to repeat what Porto and Inter Milan had done whenever drawing the first game of the season with a 2-2 scoreline.

On Sunday, Chelsea won the first match of the season against WBA, with a formidable performance by recently-signed wingman Pedro. Will this be the start of another successful year for the Blues, or did Pedro's "beginner's luck" rub on Chelsea to grant them the win?
