But Chelsea head coach Mourinho, who has so far

signed Steve Sidwell and Claudio Pizarro on frees, insists his men have nothing to fear from a United side reinforced by Anderson, Nani and Owen Hargreaves.

Mourinho said: "I’m not

worried. United can only

play with 11 players and if

they played them all,

Ryan Giggs would be out,

which would make me

very happy.

"When Chelsea were

spending, everybody said

we had the obligation to

win. ‘Chelsea are buying

their titles,’ they said.

"Now I’m waiting to see

if people put us in the

last place of the title

candidates as they have to

put United first, Liverpool

second — they haven’t

spent much yet but they

will — and then Arsenal,

Tottenham, Aston Villa

and Newcastle."
