EPL: RVP + Roon = R.I.P for Blues

EPL: RVP + Roon = R.I.P for Blues

Everyone seems to be going on and on about Jose Mourinho and Chelsea, but honestly, I'm still not convinced by the return of the self-styled "Special One".

Instead of people talking about Chelsea, it's suddenly Mourinho and Chelsea, and I find that a little disrespectful to the club.

Even with Mourinho pulling the strings, I believe Manchester United are good enough to beat Chelsea at Old Trafford on Tuesday morning (Singapore time) in the first big English Premier League clash of the season.

The Blues may have a 100 per cent record after two games, but Chelsea are not in as great a shape as many seem to think.

While Hull City were a waste of time in the opening fixture, Aston Villa were unfortunate not to get anything in that 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

While much has been made of David Moyes' inability to add a major signing in the ranks of the reigning champions, Mourinho hasn't made a significant transfer of his own yet, either.

It's just not a Mourinho team for me.

If you look at Chelsea's last two teamsheets, you'll see that the team are still very much a Roberto Di Matteo and Rafael Benitez side.
