Even though Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's 150th game in charge inside a Premier League dugout was unsuccessful, as the Blues were defeated 1-0 against Aston Villa at Villa Park, Birmingham, on Saturday, March 15, the Happy One still manages to set records and help create positive headlines for himself.
While the printed press focus on the Portuguese's attack on referee Chris Foy, an officiator The Independent allege Mourinho to have said must have "problems" with the club after sending both Willian and Ramires off the field prior to the club falling to a late Fabian Delph winner, the Premier League released their statistics from matchweek 30 which implicate Mourinho as the division's best managerial winner - ahead of legendary mainstays Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson, now retired.
"This was Jose Mourinho’s 150th Barclays Premier League match as a manager and despite losing, he’s still won more of his first 150 than any other manager in the history of the competition (105)," a statement indicates on the league's official website.
Combined with that healthy record, Mourinho remains unbeaten at Stamford Bridge, as all 14 of his Premier League losses have been suffered when on the road.
The release added: "Chelsea’s 14-match unbeaten streak in the Premier League came to an end with this defeat (previous won 11, drawn three)."
