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

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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
