Mourinho faces one of the most significant moments in his long and illustrious career when Kiev visit Stamford Bridge for a match he cannot afford to lose.

The 52-year-old is hanging onto his job by a slender thread after a turbulent season took another turn for the worse with a 3-1 home defeat against Liverpool on Saturday.

Mourinho, who received a one-game stadium ban for this weekend's trip to Stoke, said: "It's a big game. It's a game that we cannot lose. We still can finish first, second or third and obviously we want to finish in the top two."

Meanwhile, Mourinho refused to comment on whether he had met club owner Roman Abramovich but when asked how long he thought he had left in the job, he said: "I have four years. In this case, three years and seven months, or something like that."
