Mourinho won't rule out Man United move for Danny Rose

That is why Mourinho is warning his title rivals that he is back to his best as a boss, three seasons after winning the Premier League and getting sacked by Chelsea. Leaping from sixth place to top may appear ambitious but United are precisely that.

United have added striker Romelu Lukaku, midfielder Nemanja Matic and defender Victor Lindelof to their squad.

"Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way and I'm very happy at Chelsea". Will Jurgen Klopp lead Liverpool to their first Premier League title in the modern area or will Mauricio Pochettino finally take Spurs one step further?

"I'd say seven teams to fight for the title and 20 teams to fight for the victory every weekend, every match". We were playing a team full of fantastic players, we discussed the result until nearly the end. But as we prepare for our all-important opener against Manchester United, we need to reflect on last season's opener against Chelsea, more importantly, how prepared we were.

But what of his remarkable second-season record and what it might mean for the looming campaign?

"So I'm convinced I have - not just the hope - but the conviction that our second season, in terms of the quality of our team, is going to be better".

I think it comes down to our four away games which will be the draining aspect of the first few weeks of the Premier League season. One of the keys to Chelsea's success last season was the team staying healthy, and that will be the case again in 2017-18.

After a season in which the now-departed (but slated to return) Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted 28 goals, the obvious focus is on Lukaku to step into those boots.

"It's getting much harder for everyone, so we don't know".

"We have a central midfielder and striker, so obviously another player would be one coming from the sides".

Mourinho reiterated at a pre-match conference yesterday his satisfaction with the club's transfer business this summer window, despite not achieving "100 per cent" of his targets.

Mourinho has no new injury concerns, with Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young his only long-term absentees.

So what can we do to get ourselves mentally prepared?

All of the top six can lay claim to that crown as each have the pieces to score ad nauseam on any given day, against any given team.
