The initial frenzy surrounding Jose Mourinho's arrival is behind Chelsea and they've started the campaign in impressive form, with wins over Hull City, Aston Villa and a strong effort against Bayern Munich in the Super Cup.

Chelsea captain John Terry knows that he will have a hard time keeping his first-team place against improving Gary Cahill and David Luiz, who was one of the most important figures for Chelsea last season in a fight on multiple fronts.

"We are looking fit and together thanks to Mourinho, it's us against everyone and I think that's what made us when he was here before and we are very much in the same mould again" the former England skipper told to Daily Mirror.

Terry also praised Jose Mourinho's man-managment skills as he embarks on a second spell at Stamford Bridge, as he claimed that: "He makes players want to play for him."

Terry is delighted to have Mourinho back in the Chelsesa dugout especially after a injury-hit season last year, which prevented him from playing in another European final for Chelsea in the Europa League.

The 32-year-old didn't feature consistently under previous interim coach Rafael Benitez, with David Luiz, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic preferred at various points in central defence.

Most fans still believe that Terry will be a first-team fixture under Mourinho, with the Portuguese coach enjoying a strong working relationship with the centre-back following a hugely successful first reign as Blues boss.
