Jose Mourinho: Arsenal will challenge Chelsea for Premier League title

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says Arsenal have a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League title

Jose Mourinho says Arsenal are capable of winning the Premier League this season.

The Gunners have signed one player in the summer transfer window after Arsene Wenger concluded an £11m deal to bring Petr Cech to The Emirates from Premier League champions Chelsea earlier this month.

The 33-year-old Czech Republic international could face his former club less than a month after his switch across London on Sunday as Arsenal face Mourinho’s Chelsea side in the Community Shield at The Emirates.

Speaking at his pre-match media conference, the Chelsea manager talked up Arsenal’s qualities ahead of this weekend’s clash.

Mourinho signed Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic in an £8m deal to replace Cech and provide competition for first-choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

And the Chelsea boss, who has won three Premier League titles, played down the significance of potentially facing Cech at Wembley.

The Chelsea boss has also added Radamel Falcao to his title-winning squad after the former Manchester United striker moved to Stamford Bridge on a season-long loan.
