Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon remains confident ahead of the new season despite Manchester United taking over as the Premier League´s big spenders.

Kenyon, who previously worked at Old Trafford, admits United´s bold moves into the transfer market has come as a surprise but insists he and boss Jose Mourinho are satisfied with their work as they look to wrest the title back.

"I think it surprised everybody how quick they came out and what they spent," said Kenyon. "I´m not worried about what we´ve spent. We always look at how they´ve spent versus how we´ve spent and that´s fine but I don´t think it´s all about money."
