  • Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes he has “no right” to ask Roman Abramovich for January signings

    Jose Mourinho claims he has “no right” to ask Roman ­Abramovich to spend on new playhe former Paris FC defender has attracted interest from across Europe this season - including from the Canaries.Le 10 Sport says Norwich have made contact with Reims to discuss terms for Disasi ahead of the January market. Reims are reluctant to loseers in January. The manager is adamant that he and his current squad have got his side into their deep hole and have a duty to dig them out. After Angry Jose and Sulky Jose, here was Humble Jose as insisted he does not deserve reinforcements. Mourinho believes his men are capable of a top-four finish, despite a calamitous start to their title defence, which sees them 16th after three straight defeats – and he expects them to turn the corner when Norwich visit today. The Blues boss said: “I’m not saying I won’t sign anyone. I’m just saying I won’t ask the club to do that. I don’t have the right to do it, in my opinion. I’d be more than happy with the squad I have now. “I have no right to ask because our performance during this Premier League season is not good enough. If I ask for players, or if the clubs give me a handful of players, it’s like taking the responsibility out of us and saying we need extra to reach our objectives. “I want the responsibility in my hands, these players to have the responsibility in their hands. I want the players to feel I trust them. “I will not ask the board in January. I don’t need to clean the dressing room, as I heard was written somewhere. And I don’t need to ask the club to spend money in January. Gallery: Chelsea go down at Stoke “We put ourselves in a great situation together by being champions. We put ourselves together in this situation in the Premier League – we have to be together, again, to put it right.” Chelsea are still expected to bid for a striker in the window, with Diego Costa out of sorts and Radamel Falcao struggling for fitness – even though Mourinho claims he wants the on-loan Colombian to stay beyond January. And Mourinho admits he wouldn’t say no, if a superstar became available. “Of course, I’d say yes,” he said. “But not because I don’t trust my players, or that I think only a superstar will content_imghelp us reach our objectives.” Asked if Chelsea can make history and become the first team to secure Champions League qualification after such a wretched start to the season, he answered: “Yes.” And, of the Norwich game, he insisted: “We are going to play well and get a good result. The players are ­enthusiastic, confident, they know they are playing more than OK. Results winal.Lacazette has referred to Arsenal being his 'home' amid reports linking the France international with a move to Barcelona.In a post showing his return to pre-season training at the Gunners' Colney Heath base, the 28-year-old set his location as 'll come. The next match is the match when it will come. We are positive. We are not going to start the game under any kind of pressure.” Chelsea’s technical director Michael Emenalo this week. But the manager said: “Nothing that went public is something I don’t know before. We were champions four months ago. Not four years ago. Or 10 years ago. The manager is the same. The players are basically the same too. “Nobody gives new contracts to players, like we did to so many of them, if we don’t trust the players. “In a couple of weeks, Falcao will come back from injury. Thibaut ­Courtois in December, too. We really believe good things are waiting for us.” Do Chelsea need to spend in January?500+ VOTES SO FAR

"I have said to the boys that until the first goal we played a very good away match with possibilities to score. "Within five minutes the game is over with the second and third goals and that cannot happen. I know that, but OK that has happened and we have to cope with that."

  • Alan Pardew lauds Christian Benteke for setting good example to young players at Crystal Palace

    be warned – has a smile on his face after capping a “phenomenal week” by becoming a father for the second time. Alan Pardew reckons it is always a good thing when a striker is beaming and Benteke has every reason to be right now. The Belgian made history on Monday night when he scored the fastest ever goal in World Cup qualifying after just 8.1 seconds against Gibraltar on his way to netting a hat-trick. And there was more joy for Benteke, 25, on Thursday when he became a father for the second time following the birth of his daughter. All the good news has left Benteke on a high ahead of West Ham's visit to Selhurst Park and Pardew said: “On the playing side he has had a phenomenal week - scoring the fastest goal in world Cup qualifying, gets a hat-trick and then he has a baby girl yesterday. “He has got a big smile on his face at the moment and that is always good with strikers because they can be moody.” Red-hot Benteke's Belgium treble made it six goals in his last five starts for club and country. And he has made just as big an impact off the pitch since his £32m move to Palace. “He carries himself in such a professional manner he is a good example to our young players here,” Pardew said. “Young players here from south London have to have a bit of fighting spirit and confidence to travel and live in this area and sometimes it's good to see an example like Christian for our younger players of how to do it exactly right.” Defender James Tomkins will be another central figure at Selhurst Park today in his first match against West Ham since leaving his boyhood club for Crystal Palace in the summer. Tomkins' £10m arrival was a reward for Pardew's persistence having tried and failed to prise him away from West Ham when he was Newcastle boss. The difference this time was Palace chairman Steve Parish who “pushed hard” to ensure Pardew finally landed his man. Pardew, who also worked with Tomkins as he came through the ranks at West Ham, said: “I don't know how many Premier League games he has got - is it 200 (206)? - and he is 27. “Centre-halves don't really understand the role until they are 27 so he really has done his apprenticeship playing in the Premier League in the first team so that really does bode well going forward.” After a tricky start to the season the mood around Palace has been transformed, largely thanks to Benteke's arrival and impact and three wins and a draw from their last four league games. And, as he discussed the effect moving stadiums has had on West Ham, Pardew revealed their could be more good news for Palace fans on the way. He said: “I’ve had conversations with Steve and we’ve talked about what it would be like if we took it away from Selhurst. “But we wouldn’t want to do that and I am sure West Hamted and looks increasingly likely to leave Old Trafford this month, according to Sky Sports in Italy.The 34-year-old's current deal expires in the summer and United made the offer of a one-year extension in order to fend off interest from Inter Milan were of the same opinion. But sometimes the financial benefits are such that you have to consider it. “Our thoughts at the moment are to redevelop Selhurst Park and there is a strong commitment with the new owners to do that. “I don’t think Steve would mind me telling you that our fans could expect to see something in the pipeline soon because the stadium needs to come up in standard for sure. “Moving stadiums is always difficult because you are taking away years and years of tradition of West Ham fans taking their sons and grandchildren to Upton Park. “I had the same experience at Reading when we moved from Elmy Musonda is still carrying a knee injury.The midfielder had joined Vitesse on a season-content_imglong from Chelsea, with last term's deal plagued by a knee injury.That setback occurred in September last year.
