Blues boss impressed with City start.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has insisted that they must follow Manchester City’s example by making an all out assault on the Premier League this term, the Mirror reports.
The Stamford Bridge boss watched City’s opening day demolition of Newcastle United with great interest, believing that they have already set the standard that the other challengers must quickly meet.
Mourinho had been accused of being too conservative whilst in charge of Real Madrid , something which had followed him since his first spell in charge at Chelsea, but when asked about his plans the response was rather bullish.
“We want to win matches,” he said.
“But what I like is that when you have the chance to destroy – to beat them by three, four or five – we have to do it.
“If someone has the chance to do it to you, they will not forgive you. They will give you nothing. If someone feels that they can do it to us, they will do it. So if we have the chance to do it, we have to do it.
“If we do that, we destroy an opponent, we get a much bigger result because going that way you have to score goals, even if the opposing goalkeeper saves a penalty.”
