Mourinho: Struggling Man United is 'Most Dangerous'

Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho insists that Manchester United is still a ‘dangerous’ team despite the Red Devils’ stuttering start to life under new manager David Moyes which has seen last season’s Premier League champion slip to 11 points behind first-place Arsenal. Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s clash with United on Sunday, the Portuguese insisted that United is not out of the title race: "Man United are Man United. Eleven points is a big gap but I believe they'll push all the way.”

He added: "We play against the champions. We play Manchester United, not a team 11 points behind the leaders. I've played many big matches and this is what my experience tells me. A team that appears to be in the most difficulty can be the most dangerous."

Mourinho was adamant that Moyes doesn’t need any words of comfort as he tries to make his mark as United coach. "There is no reason to have sympathy for Moyes," he said. “He has a fantastic job and is very stable. The club gave him fantastic trust, it's a club with a fantastic culture who believe in the manager. He will at least have the time of his contract to build a team and reach success for many years. He has a fantastic job and needs no sympathy."
