Mourinho delivered a very laid back media conference yesterday for the world's press.
"When I arrived in 2004 Arsenal were the power and were a fantastic team, and after that it was us and Man United trying to go there," he told chelseafc.com.
"Now the picture is different. Man U are the champions, Man City were before them and when I was here first time they were not able to do that. And you have Arsenal and Tottenham coming up and Liverpool in the second season with Brendan will be there.
"So for everybody the competition starts by trying to finish top four, and then top three because it is better than top four, and then to try to be champions, and we will try."
