Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has claimed that his team are the underdogs for next month's FA Cup visit to Manchester City.

The Premier League giants were paired with each other in the fifth round of the competition, with the encounter scheduled to come less than a fortnight after the Blues travel to the Etihad Stadium for a league game.

"Our priority is to improve and the best way to improve is play against Man City twice in 15 days away from home," he told reporters after the 1-0 win over Stoke City at Stamford Bridge.

"We are ready to go to City and enjoy it. We will go there with a good attitude and we have nothing to lose."

Mourinho's men booked their place in the fifth round after labouring to victory over the Potters this evening, with Oscar's 27th-minute free kick proving enough to down Mark Hughes's men.
