Jose Mourinho comments on Chelsea form ahead of Man United clash

Jose Mourinho admits that Chelsea are in good shape heading into Sunday's clash with Manchester United

Jose Mourinho has admitted that Chelsea are in a good position as they prepare to take on Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils head into the game looking to return to winning ways in the top flight after their recent draws against Stoke City and Liverpool.

Mourinho is currently preparing for his first return to Stamford Bridge since his sacking by the west London club back in December.

The Portuguese coach was dismissed by the Blues after a disastrous start to the west London club’s title defence last term.

Chelsea ended up in 10th place in the Premier League and with their title defence in tatters last season.

Antonio Conte is the new man in charge at The Bridge and the Blues are currently in fifth place in the top-flight table.

And Mourinho says that the Blues are in a good position heading into Sunday’s showdown.

Mourinho is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: “I don’t have to analyse their start to the season. But you look to the table and you see where they are. They are in a good position.

“So the start of the season cannot be bad if they are where they are.”
