Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho won’t have much to worry about as his team approaches the final two Premier League games of the year.

The Blues clinched the league title with a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on May 3 and drew Liverpool, 1-1, the following week.

On Monday, Mourinho and Co. will journey to the Hawthorns in a contest that, he believes, is a “no pressure” match for both sides. But gaining three points, the ex-Real Madrid boss believes, is a desire for all teams, and this game is no different in that respect.

“I’m happy that West Bromwich Albion is champion of their league, and they don’t need any points,” he said. “So, no pressure for us, no pressure for them….But for sure, they want to win their last game at home. And for sure, we want to try (to get) the maximum points (possible).”

Going on to discuss his offseason, Mourinho was clear that he’ll have time to kick back and unwind.

“I expect to be busy walking from my towel in the sand to the water, swim a little bit and be back in the sun again,” the manager said with a slight smile.
