Jose Mourinho: Every match is a test and every match is three points

Chelsea welcome City to Stamford Bridge a point better off after eight games and on the back of a seven-match unbeaten run which has included 14 goals in their last four games.

"We have to play our game," said the Portuguese boss. "We are going to play our game and let's see if our game is enough to win against them.

"I just play every game the same way. We want to win. To win is good, to lose is not good.

"In this moment, with the way the Premier League is going week after week, no result will put a team in a great situation, no result will put a team in a difficult situation.

"Every weekend somebody loses points. Some weekends more than one of the top teams lose points.

"The league is hard, so I don't think at this stage, mid-October, one game is going to be crucial.

"We have tests every week. It's a big team, yes, it's a very good team, but every match is a test and every match is three points."

Mourinho believes six teams are in title contention, including Manuel Pellegrini's City.

"He has the most important thing which is an unbelievable squad of players," added Mourinho, who also maintains Manchester United are still in the running, despite already being eight points behind leaders Arsenal.

"They had lots of difficult matches and other teams, they didn't," added Mourinho.

"They played already against Chelsea, they played against Liverpool, they played against City.

"There will come a time and a period of fixtures where they will win consecutive matches and where other teams will lose points and where they will close the gap and where they will put themselves in a position to fight for the title."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
