Bookies have stopped taking bets on the Blues boss to be the next out the door in the Premier League sack race.
And the Mourinho remains in his greatest crisis after he fell to his first ever Stamford Bridge loss to the Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.
And it had all looked so great for the Blues when Ramires headed them into an early lead.
But they sat back and allowed Liverpool to dominate the rest of the half.
And Philippe Coutinho made them pay in the third minute of first half stoppage time — even though only two minutes off added time were announced
Coutinho scored the second in the 74th miunte, his effort coming off John Terry, before substitute Christian Benteke grabbed the third for Jurgen Klopp’s first win.
It was certainly a gripping, action-packed game. During the second half, Klopp argued with a member of Chelsea’s backroom staff, Jose Morias, who was sat behind the bench.
Mourinho was furious that Lucas avoied a second yellow in the 68th minute for a foul on Ramires. He was booked earlier in the half for a foul on Mikel.
Chelsea started strongly and just as the home fans started singing the name of Jose Mourinho, they scored.
Cesar Azpilicueta delivered an excellent cross from the left and Ramires charged through to head past Simon Mignolet.
Yet some of the blame went to left-back Alberto Moreno who stood rooted to the spot, completely unaware that he should have been aware of Ramires’ late run. Mignolet could also have done better.
Liverpool were a mess although they gradually came into the game even though – playing without a recognised striker – they rarely threatened.
Adam Lallana, Coutinho and Roberto Firmino also took turns to play in the central striker role but to little effect.
Liverpool started to grow into the game and then grabbed a deserved equaliser three minutes into first half stoppage time.
It was a fantastic move with Coutinho delivering a fine, curling shot after turning Ramires.
Mourinho headed straight down the tunnel.
Once again, Chelsea found their way back into the game. Oscar nearly scored one of the goals of the season with a 50-yard lob which Mignolet saved.
Yet Liverpool struck in the second in the 74th minute, sub Benteke heading towards Coutinho. He turned Gary Cahill and his effort deflected off Terry.
The match then turned into a disaster for Mourinho when Jordan Ibe’s cross was dummied by Lallana. Benteke had far too much space in the area before planting the ball past Asmir Begovic.
Kop boss Klopp was full of praise for his side after they secured his first away win since taking over earlier this month.
He said: “We did not have the best start, but we were always in the game. We deserved to be level at half-time.
“Second half was an open game. We got our goals in two perfect moments. We had a bit of luck, but it was deserved.
“If you want to win at Chelsea you need a bit of luck.
“You have to solve your problems within the game. We did that.”
The German was aware the victory had ramped up the pressure on Mourinho — and he has sympathy for his Blues counterpart.
Klopp added: “Nobody is in doubt. He is one of best managers in world.
“But things like this [sackings] happen.”
Mourinho held a sombre meeting with his backroom staff in the centre circle after full-time.
Asked whether he thought this was his last game in charge of Chelsea, he said: “No, I don’t.”Follow us on Twitter at @Riverinenews
