Chelsea boss Mourinho: Ozil makes Arsenal title contenders

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho admits he blocked Demba Ba's move to Arsenal after learning of their deal for Mesut Ozil. Mourinho worked with Ozil last season at Real Madrid and believes his signing makes Arsenal title contenders.

"Everyone loves him and sees a bit of Luis Figo and Zinedine Zidane in him," said Mourinho.

"We didn't accept Arsenal's offer for Demba Ba because the signing of Ozil makes them title contenders."
