FC Chelsea Update : FA Cup Chelsea v Stoke City Tickets

'We lost against them and it wasn't a long time ago,' Mourinho said. 'They are a difficult team; very physical, very direct, strong at set pieces and they will come to compete.

'I expect a difficult match, I will play with a strong team and not make big changes because we want to go as far as possible in the competition.'

Torres is unavailable for Sunday's game after picking up an injury in last week's win against Manchester United.

'It's not a surgery situation, thankfully, but also it's not just a little strain, it's a lateral ligament injury and it will take this week, and I would say another three weeks.'

Mourinho also spoke about new hiring Mohamed Salahwho who will transfer from Basel.

'We allowed Juan to travel and to have the medical with United,' said Mourinho. 'Sooner rather than later things will be finalised. This club is a special club and this club cares about people. This club is very respectful of the players and especially players who brought history to the club. Juan is one of these.

'I still think he could be important for us, he's a fantastic player. In spite of not playing for us, especially in the last period, he could be important for us, but Juan has a fantastic opportunity; another big club wants him, in a country where he loves to be and he loves to play.

'The offer is the right offer for us, so in spite of the fact many clubs, many boards and many managers thinking you shouldn't sell to a rival, especially one in the same country, we feel different.

'The player deserves respect and deserves to be happy and play where he wants to play. Because the offer is what we consider the right offer for the quality of the player we allowed him to negotiate with them and we didn't close the door.

'It's a good offer, respectful to us and the value of the player. It allows us to try to add another player, because we need another player, and still have a fantastic profit. With the two deals, Juan and Kevin De Bruyne, we put ourselves in a fantastic position with Financial Fair Play.'

Mourinho acknowledged it was with much sadness the decision was taken to let Mata leave.

'I asked him when the offer came if he was happy to go and he said yes,' said the Blues boss. 'After that we felt mixed emotions, we are happy that he's going to a fantastic situation but at the same time we are sad. With him it was the same, very happy to go from Chelsea to Man United, staying in England and the Premier League, probably with guarantees he will play. It's good for Juan, the Premier League and the offer, in financial terms, is the right offer.

'He tried to give everything, it was just a point of the team doing very well for the last couple of months and winning matches consecutively. Willian, Hazard and Oscar are playing really well and he wasn't playing.

'In matches where he could have been decisive coming off the bench, when he was about to come on we scored goals. I was playing him at Derby and we scored. I was going to bring him on against Hull at the beginning of the second half and we scored. Against Man United we were 3-0 up, so I couldn't even bring him from the bench and make him feel great by changing the game. In the last four or five matches he wasn't even playing so he was clearly affected, frustrated, disappointed.

'I worked with him for four, five six months but he's been at the club for more than two years, so people know him much better than I do. What I know is enough to know he deserves this, if he cannot be fully happy here because he's not playing 100 per cent like in the last two years, if he has a big club that wants him, even if it's a rival club and in England, the club decided, and I was completely on the club's side, you cannot stop people from being happy if the offer is the right offer.'

'It was a surprise for us that Juan was leaving, we were not prepared to make bids and try to bring a player to replace him in the squad, everything happened very fast,' said Mourinho. 'We had to work on that and see what options could be good for us.

'When we finally decided to go for Salah we had to start from zero because we had no contact with the club or the player, we didn't even know who the player's agent is. The first step was an agreement with the club, as we made official. Everything is done subject to the medical and the player's desire to join us. Now we know he's happy the two clubs have an agreement.

'He cannot come to England for his medical so we have to travel to meet him, probably in Switzerland, and only after that we can get the paperwork to bring him to the country.

'I like the fact that he can play the same way as our attacking players do, which is with adaptability to play right, left or behind the striker. He's young, like our players in that area are, he's fast, creative and enthusiastic.

'When we analysed him he looks like the type of player who is humble on the pitch and we believe if he comes he will have a similar process to the one Willian had.'

'Michael Essien is at this moment in a position where he could go or stay,' said Mourinho. 'If he stays we are more than happy as he's a fantastic club man and team player, but he's another one who's given everything for the club and if a great situation arrives for his future, related to competition, going to the World Cup and playing at a high level for another few years, he's another one that we feel we must show respect to.

'To show him respect is to not stop him going, but if he stays he's playing against Stoke at the weekend.'

Andy Carroll Update : West Ham United v FC Chelsea Tickets

Andy Carroll Update : Chelsea v West Ham United Tickets

West Ham’s star striker, Andy Carroll is hoping to make the cut for England’s World Cup 2014 squad. Carroll is the Hammers’ record £15million signing.

Carroll has nine England caps - the last was against San Marino in October 2012.

“Of course the World Cup is massive and everybody wants to be involved. It’s in my head that there’s still a chance for me to go to Brazil, and I’d be devastated if I missed out, to be honest.

“It was great to be away at the Euros, playing with the best players in Europe. Now I’ve got to work hard and I’ll have a chance of playing with the best in the world.

“That’s a great incentive for me to do as well as I possibly can for West Ham.”

Carroll is recently back from a foot injury – his comeback was accelerated by specialists in Antwerp, Belgium.

“For me, it’s been tough being out for so long, and it’s been ­disappointing for the team not doing so well.

“I just want to stay fit, as every player does. I’ve been plagued with injuries, but I’m just going to forget about that now. I’m not going to worry about injuries at all, play in the games and try to do well, create chances, score goals and get us well clear of the bottom.”

Carroll’s continued presence for West Ham could be essential for West Ham’s hopes of survival from Premiership relegation.

Carroll spent five years at Newcastle, scoring 33 goals in 91 appearances, before joining Liverpool for £35 million before transferring to West Ham.

Santi Cazorla scored twice as Arsenal beat Fulham to claim a fifth successive Premier League win.

Mesut Ozil suggests that The Gunners "put their foot down" in the next few months.

The 25-year-old feels at ease in his new surroundings.

"I am very satisfied," he said. "I know I can play better, I know what potential I have, but the most important thing is that everything works well at the moment with the team," said Ozil ahead of the classh according to Arsenal.com. "I don't really any pressure about it, I just have fun with it all, I enjoy what I'm doing. It's my dream to be here and I'm just very, very happy. I appreciate being here and it's great to be in this great team.

"The team accepted me very well. I knew before I came to Arsenal what kind of players were here. And of course in training you can see how many good players are here. We can achieve great things if we really put our foot down and try hard."
