Jose Mourinho rejects trophy pressure

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has dismissed suggestions that he needs to win a trophy in his second season as Blues manager.

Mourinho labelled Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger a "specialist in failure" last February, before the Frenchman ended a nine-year trophy drought by winning the FA Cup.

Chelsea and Mourinho finished last season without any silverware, and speaking ahead of Monday's game with Burnley, he was asked whether he needed to avoid a repeat of that scenario in his second season back at Stamford Bridge.

"Why?" he said. "Some [managers] have 10 years to win something, I have only two?"

"I like to work, I like to build. I don't like easy jobs. I don't like to get clubs worked by other managers before me. I don't like to arrive on time to collect the fruits off their trees."

Mourinho also shed some light on which of his goalkeepers will start against Burnley, with Petr Cech and Thibaut Courtois vying for a place in the XI.

"I cannot kill competition, I cannot close the door for someone to get into the team," he added. "I cannot give a player, even a goalkeeper, guarantees that he is my first choice forever if he doesn't perform.

"Obviously you cannot change a goalkeeper if he makes a mistake, but you can change a goalkeeper if he makes five mistakes. So what is my first choice today cannot be my first choice tomorrow. It depends on performance."
