Remy became Chelsea’s fifth addition of the summer on Sunday, following the arrivals of Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas, Filipe Luis and Didier Drogba.

And the 27-year-old, who has made the short journey across west London from QPR, admits he is hoping to discover his best form under the Portuguese coach.

"I spoke with him (Mourinho)," Remy told the club's official website after agreeing a four-year contract.

"He is very clever and he knows exactly what he wants. He has targets for me and I know I have a target for myself as well.

"Everybody wants the best so the discussion was really good. I know he can get the best out of a player and I'm looking forward to working with him."

The former Marseille striker knows he has work cut out to earn a place in Mourinho’s starting line-up following Costa’s impressive start to his Chelsea career.

The Spain international has scored four goals in his first three matches since completing a £32.5million switch from Atletico Madrid earlier this summer.

"We have two great strikers here already and I don't have a choice if I want to be in the team - I have to play at a very high level,” Remy said.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
