Jose Mourinho: Says Chelsea go to Manchester City in search of all three points

City have a 100 per cent home record in the Premier League this season, winning all 11 of their matches and scoring 42 goals in the process.

And Mourinho, whose side have only managed draws away at Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal this season, insists his side are under no pressure ahead of the game against Manuel Pellegrini's team.

"We are going to try to win knowing perfectly we can lose or draw. Our intention is to try to win," he said.

"City score goals. Normally, when your approach is very defensive, if you concede a goal you are in trouble.

"Or you have to make changes during the game and you never know how the players adapt to it."

Manchester City have scored at will this season with four players already in double figures.

The club's top goalscorer Sergio Aguero misses the game against Chelsea with a hamstring injury but Mourinho insists City have more than enough striking options at their disposal.

"He's a fantastic player, but he's one of so many," Mourinho said.

"Even the fourth striker (Stevan Jovetic), coming off the bench, comes on and scores (in Wednesday's 5-1 win at Tottenham).

"For the last months Sergio was injured and the third striker, (Edin) Dzeko, was making the difference and scoring a lot of goals.

"So for them it's not important if somebody is injured."

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.
