Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho's thirst for victory remains undiminished despite clinching the Premier League title.

The Blues play at West Brom on Monday, with Mourinho eager for a 26th win of the season.

"We all need to respect the game and play for the best result. We are going to try (for) the maximum possible points," said Mourinho, whose side play Sunderland on May 24.

"I'm happy that West Bromwich Albion is also champion of their league and they don't need points. So no pressure for us, no pressure for them.

"But for sure they want to win the last game at home and for sure we want to try the maximum points."

Chelsea entered the weekend's fixtures with an 11-point advantage and Mourinho is keen to reach the 90-point mark with maximum points from the final two games.

"To be champion is to be champion, one point more, one point less," he said.

"But the reality the maximum points possible, the better.

"The more distance you have to the second, the better. And we are going to try."
