Man Utd boss Mourinho: Chelsea, Liverpool will find it tougher next season

Man Utd boss Mourinho: Chelsea, Liverpool will find it tougher next season”

It looks like they are playing to win the Premier League, too.

Mourinho has now praised the Hammers for managing to sign the striker, saying, "I am thinking about West Ham for the first match of the Premier League".

The workload forced Mourinho to rest players for league games against Arsenal and Tottenham in the final weeks of the campaign.

Mourinho would have wanted all four of his summer targets with the squad for the pre-season, however, with Ed Woodward failing to get deals over the line, it seems like any new arrivals won't have the chance to adapt to the move to being thrown into the deep end.

But after finishing sixth last season, the United boss seems keen to try to keep expectations under wraps as he prepares for both Premier League and Champions League football. But obviously, to play one match per week and one, two or three days off during the week, have no injuries or no accumulation, the same with Liverpool, I think obviously it helps.

"In other countries, they have the winter break".

"That happens with the German teams, with the Spanish teams, with the French teams".

"I'm sorry ICC, we want to give a good show, we want to give good matches, but we are training, and I can not change that mentality", he said.

A year on from a quagmire pitch forcing their Beijing meeting to be called off, the cavernous NRG Stadium, host of the Super Bowl earlier this year, witnessed history as the rivals met in the International Champions Cup. I want to compete against Barcelona if we find them in the Champions League.

He added: "I don't want to say it was "key" because if I say that, I don't want to take credit from the credit that they (Chelsea) deserve".

Those struggles were tempered by successes in the Community Shield, EFL Cup and, most importantly, Europa League, but the Portuguese knows his side need to kick on this term in the Premier League.
