Mourinho predicts seven-way fight for Premier League title

12 Août 2017

Romelu Lukaku is a very good striker, and the Belgium global will be determined to make a strong start to the new Premier League campaign for his new club.

The Italian led the Blues from 10th the previous campaign to the Premier League trophy last season. And if that is to happen it will be a hard place to come and take points from, while on the road they will prove as hard as any other opponent.

Conte led Chelsea to the title in his first season in English football and his win ratio of 79 per cent is the best of any manager in the history of the Premier League.

Champions Chelsea could give a debut to Spain striker Alvaro Morata at home to Burnley, while last season's runners-up Tottenham Hotspur, who have yet to sign any players in the transfer window, visit promoted Newcastle United on Sunday.

However, Mourinho says he will move on if the club fail to make another signing and says players like Lindelof are capable of occupying other positions. "If you think about Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mourinho, it is a very good championship now", he added.

"He likes me a lot and I like him a lot as a coach and as a person".

He did it twice during his time at Chelsea, throwing his Premier League winners' medal to the crowd in 2005 and giving away his losers' medal after the 2015 Community shield.

"He thinks he can do more and wants more at the highest level, so we're having conversations and we're discussing the possibility of him to stay with us for the second part of the season". "We solved a lot in this summer, and for this reason it's very important to try to improve our squad because we have one more competition".

"Whatever happens in the transfer window, the club are doing their best".

March believes that the high transfer fees are a reflection of the quality in the league but says Brighton are not intimidated by bigger teams or anxious by the general consensus that they will be relegated after just one season.

"So between the players we lost and the players we got, I think we are in a similar situation". "We are here to win the games and titles".

Foden is one of several youngsters who travelled to the United States for pre-season in July, alongside Brahim, goalkeepers Aro Muric and Daniel Grimshaw, and right-back Demeaco Duhaney, who joined the tour halfway through.

"You know he's injured, he needs time to recover, he's not ready to play tomorrow", Mourinho said.
