Terry: No Mourinho guarantees

John Terry knows he is not guaranteed a place in Jose Mourinho's first team at Chelsea this season.

Last Updated: 24/08/13 at 20:27   

The Stamford Bridge club's captain has started in the wins over Hull City and Aston Villa at the start of the Premier League.

But former England international Terry is aware he cannot be certain to play every game amid competition for places with the likes of Gary Cahill and David Luiz.

"No guarantees you will be in the side, nothing," Terry told Sky Sports when speaking about Mourinho's return for a second spell in charge of Chelsea this summer.

"Whether you are captain or not, he made that very clear from day one."

Next up for Chelsea is Monday night's trip to title rivals Manchester United, where David Moyes will take charge of his first competitive game at Old Trafford.

"I don't think it is going to make or break the season," said Terry. "It could be one of them - a head-start for either side.

"But we have a good record going to Old Trafford over the last few years and that will serve us well.

"Obviously it is David Moyes' first game at the stadium so we are expecting quite a hostile atmosphere anyway."

Terry added: "But we will go there and look to stay solid for the first 10 or 15 minutes anyway. We know it is going to be a tough place to go and they have had a good win against Swansea.

"But the two wins for us will serve us well and we go there full of confidence."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
