Liverpool took control of their Champions League quarter-final tie with Manchester City last night, with an emphatic 3-0 victory that only the most optimistic Reds supporters could have dreamed of.
For Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, hope springs eternal.
Mourinho said: "You see the number of points we have and it is easy to go to the books with the number of points we have we would normally be in the fight for the title but we are not because City have a very good number of points that makes it very, very hard to fight for the title, which we are not in this moment".
"After the game, if we win the game, come to the press conference and I will tell you how I am going to celebrate!", he added.
He said in the aftermath of a frustrating afternoon on home soil: "For the fans it is tough and maybe we are going to get more credit if we are able to win the Premier League and people will say how tough it is to win".
Asked whether events on Merseyside had changed his plans, he replied: "After the result?" I think it's a nice feeling.

Guardiola will leave it late to decide on the potential inclusion of top scorer Sergio Aguero, who last featured in the 1-0 win over Chelsea on March 4 and has been stepping up his recovery from a knee problem.
"We are going to have training and we are going to see his physical condition".
The Brazil striker endured a particularly frustrating outing against Liverpool and was critical of his own display afterwards.
"He's so strong, he knows how we like him, he knows how we support him", Guardiola said.

"We started well and then they had four chances and scored three goals - then you know it will be really hard", he added. Always the first time you suffer, the next time he'll be better. He did what we spoke about, he fought a lot.
