Chelsea boost ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash at Stoke

A view of Blackburn Rovers' Ewood Park stadium ahead of their English Premier League soccer match against Chelsea in Blackburn, northern England October 30, 2010.

'It's a title and if you win it's okay, but after that people don't give you much credit.

However, this is only beginning.

The Telegraph say that the cost of fulfilling that total pledge made by Premier League clubs would have cost only £7.2m to meet the basic requirements. That is what we did last season. "We have quality as well but because of the money they have spent they are the favourites". He's also not surprised United and City are challenging.

Even looser than the above, the final reason why the League table actually shows City in pole position with United in second position is....the alphabet!

Meanwhile, all-time Manchester United top goal scorer Wayne Rooney, who was given a standing ovation when he left the Old Trafford pitch during Everton's 4-0 drubbing, has been fined two week's salary by his new club after he was convicted of drink driving. "I love golf!" the Spaniard said when asked about the prospect of coaching on into his 70s.

"The best way is to look at ourselves".

Manchester City are more of a team with South American flair about them.

Pep Guardiola believes Gabriel Jesus is proving to be an adept foil for strike partner Sergio Aguero. They have a special group of players. They scored 15 goals in a week (against Liverpool, Feyenoord and Watford), though their defensive wobbliness has not been entirely cut off. They have a world-class goalkeeper, good centre-back pairing, incredible defensive midfielder and a goal-scoring striker.

Aware his most successful teams have always been built around a battering ram capable of combining power and poise at the focal point of his attack, Mourinho is reaping the rewards of splashing out £75 million ($101 million) on Everton striker Romelu Lukaku. However, Manchester United seem like the best balanced United team since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. "It's normal. It's normal for United and City to be competitive and to fight for the title and the other competitions". The trio of Manchester clubs and Chelsea should be the strongest candidates for the title. "So they are the principal contenders for the title". "But I don't see them as a team with a discipline problem".

Of course, scoring goals has not been a problem for City of late and a continuation of this would be most welcome when Roy Hodgson brings his side to the Etihad on Saturday.
