Chelsea's 3-1 victory over Manchester United on Sunday meant Jose Mourinho became the fastest manager to win a century of Premier League games, taking just 142 matches to join the exclusive 100 club.

A total of 15 bosses have reached that landmark, but none have done so with the same devastating efficiency as Stamford Bridge's "Special One", beating even Sir Alex Ferguson, who still holds the record (528) for most wins in England's top-flight in its current format.

George Graham, Mark Hughes, Alan Curbishley, Sam Allardyce, Martin O'Neill and Harry Redknapp are all perhaps surprise entries into the shortlist of Premier League centurions, but their win ratio is incomparable to Mourinho, who has made an impressive start to his second stint in charge in west London.

Blues fans will hope that there's many more wins to come, with the Portuguese tactician already talking about staying with the club long-term, and could even cap his return to England by winning the title at the first time of asking.

With 15 Premier League victories already in 2013/14, Chelsea are well placed in the table, and currently lie in third spot, two points behind leaders Arsenal.

Mourinho has already said that it would be his proudest achievement in football, were he to claim the domestic crown with his existing squad of players, with the first-team going through something of a transition at present.
