Mourinho Warns Chelsea To Beware Of United


CHELSEA manager Jose Mourinho has warned his side not to take Manchester United lightly this week because they are the wounded champions of England.
The Blues are on a five-game winning streak that has seen them rise to third in the Premier League table while Manchester United have struggled under David Moyes.
But Mourinho is not expecting an easy game when the Red Devils travel to Stamford Bridge this weekend.
He said, “We don’t play a team that is 11 points behind the leaders.
“We play against the Champions. We play against Man United.
“This is how I start my programme nots and this is exactly the way I feel.”
And Mourinho believes that sometimes the table can be misleading.
He added, “Many, many times and many, many occassions the team that looks to be in the most difficult situation is the team that appears stronger in that match.”
And in a surprising confession, Mourinho says he would prefer it if Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney played for United.
He said, “I don’t know if they play but if you ask me I prefer them to play.
“I think the best thing is to play against the best players, the best thing is to play against opponents at the maximum of their potential.
“We did that in the first game at Old Trafford. They played with Rooney and van Persie together and I think that’s the best thing that can happen to us.
“For the game, for Man United (it is good) and but also to us because I think the concentration, the focus and the determination is bigger when they are there so I hope they are.”
