The Portuguese boss, who lost his sixth game of the season on Saturday at home to Southampton, insisted he would only resign if the players admit they've lost their faith in him.

"People can say what they want. I think you should go straight to the players," he told the press.

"Get a table at Cobham next week –John Terry doesn't go to the national team, Diego Costa doesn't go, Ramires doesn't go. Ask them.

"If they tell you they don't trust me, that is the only thing that can make me resign. The only thing. But not fake sources. The players at the table."

Mourinho then discussed the way he is feeling, before suggesting his Chelsea team need some luck to get out of their current slump.

"In this moment, it's not so easy and my feelings, I'm so unhappy with the sport feeling of defeat, but I am so happy with myself with the way I am facing this," he added.

"Only Mother Nature can do it. They need to feel luck, they need to arrive at half-time winning 2-0, 3-0.

"They need to fly without pressure, they need to play and feel that everything is going in their favour. Not to feel this pressure, this panic, this negativity. Decisions against us, unlucky mistakes.

"They need it. Time will bring it. I don't know next match, in two matches, in three. For sure, they will get that confidence back, for sure."
