In days past, the maximum point any club could pick at Stamford Bridge was one, but now things have changed and Mourinho admits the fear factor is no more.
Chelsea have had a bad start to the season, winning just two of the last eight matches, that see them sit 16th on the log.
A more recent loss is the 3-1 loss to Southampton at Stamford Bridge and Mourinho has admitted the Bridge is no longer secure.
And when asked if teams are no longer afraid of playing Chelsea, Mourinho replied: “Maybe. One thing is to go to a stadium where there is a huge percentage of defeats for the away team.
“Another thing is to go to a stadium where the home team in the last four games has won only once.
“I really believe every team coming to Stamford Bridge doesn’t fear us. They think they can get a result.
“Every game is a must-win game for different reasons. In my approach every game is a must-win game and when we don’t win there is always a disappointment or a frustration.
“Villa are a team that lost very important players. The manager is trying to rebuild after losing the two most important players of the team.
“They are a team not getting the best results.
I don’t believe in a couple of months they will be in this position, just like I don’t believe Chelsea will be in this position in a few months.
“We cannot run away from the reality of the Premier League table before the game starts.
The numbers are very cruel but they are objective and we need points.”
