Chelsea will play their neighbours Crystal Palace in the fourth game week of English Premier League and the pre-match press conference from Jose Mourinho is over.

Here is what the manager said ahead of the clash.

“Tomorrow’s game is different to last season’s corresponding fixture, but the need for the three points is the same.”

“I see my team coming. Again we’ve had a very good week working really well and we are looking forward to the game.”

“Palace are always a difficult opponent and have an even better team than they did last season.”

“I have a good squad and I am happy with the squad I have.”

Jose said that if they could get one more player in the window that would be good but if not he is perfectly happy with his squad as it is.

Jose Mourinho admitted that his side did not start the season very brightly and they conceded two penalties and two red cards.

Jose said he is proud of his impressive record managing Chelsea at home in the Premier League – 99 matches and just one defeat.

Mourinho said: “I am only happy if I win tomorrow and win the last of the 100 matches.”

The Portuguese said he will speak about the Champions League after the Everton game. He has two Premier League games to think about first.

Mourinho said it is good to start well in the league but notes there is a long way to go.

He said, “Palace have nothing to lose. For sure they will be in a very stable position at the end of the season. Difficult match.”

Chelsea will play Crystal Palace tomorrow in the fourth game week of Premier League. They have four points from the three games they played and their opponents have 6 from their three games and it will be an exciting match considering the strong Palace team under Alan Pardew.
