SO Jose Mourinho reckons Chelsea are still a better team than Barcelona?

Mourinho’s three big signings — Didier Drogba, Ricardo Carvalho and Shaun Wright-Phillips — cost a whopping £64.8million.

That is just £3m less than the cost of the ENTIRE Barcelona squad, who have just three £10m-plus players while Chelsea have a staggering NINE.

The Catalans boasted an impressive SEVEN players in their squad brought through the ranks compared to Chelsea’s two. And their squad is worth £67m — £116m less than the Blues.

When the stats are totted up, over all four games Barca had 65 per cent of possession compared to Chelsea’s 35 per cent. That tells us which team is more comfortable on the ball and more adept at retaining it.

Changed your mind yet, Jose? Think before you speak next time, Jose.
