Willian speaks of Mourinho admiration; reveals United talks

The 23-year-old is not the finished article, but his energy and physical presence make his flawless for the Premier League.

Home form let down United last season with their 10 home draws the highest in the league and the team had more wins away than at Old Trafford.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has insisted he is not looking for sympathy from Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

Frank Lampard has warned that Chelsea will need "an even stronger mentality" if they want to retain the Premier League title this season.

"We are champions. We have to face every game in the right way".

After signing a new five-year contract at Chelsea, the England under-21 global has headed out on loan again to Swansea to gain Premier League experience. "If you think about Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mourinho, it is a very good championship now", he added. The fact that the Serbian was sold was not the confusing bit, but that he was sold to Manchester United caused some discussion.

But with a return to the Champions League resulting in additional fixtures, the Blues' squad size appears thin.

"So we stayed to watch it and the next minute Jose was walking towards us - I didn't know what he was going to do and then he stretched out to give the medal to him".

"Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way", he explained during his interview.

"Honestly, I am pleased with the squad because we are working very well with the players, the commitment is incredible, better than last season", he said. "But we must be ready, we must be ready to try to do our best tomorrow".

"It is going to finish, it is unsustainable", Guardiola said Friday, a day before the start of the Premier League season.

But in between the sticks stand United's most important player David De Gea.

The full back position has been another problem area and Kyle Walker, signed from Spurs, is a clear upgrade at right back and France global Benjamin Mendy from Monaco an improvement on the opposite flank.

Spending such enormous amounts on players are not without the attendant pressure and, with the League season yet to kick off, bookmakers are already taking bets on which of the three will score the most number of goals.
