Sydney FC went down 0-1 to a pretty strong Spurs team tonight, Harry Kane was the goalscorer in the 43rd minute.

This will be a good challenge for our boys.

Matic-Colkett pivot please. Want to see how good Colkett can be alongside a competent footballer considering he was pretty great today.

Jose Mourinho has promised to play a full strength Chelsea side against Sydney FC on Tuesday night and feels they have a responsibility to win for their huge legion of fans.

‘The Special One’ was at his charismatic best at Sunday’s official press conference at the English Premier League champion’s hotel overlooking Sydney Harbour.

Despite coming here after a long EPL season, Mourinho wants his side to put on a show – and even suggested they will “park the bus” to get a result.

“When the opponent has the ball you have to park the bus all the time, if you don’t concede goals you have more chances to win,” Mourinho said to a huge media throng at the Park Hyatt Hotel.

“I can give already to the coach Arnold [my team]. The front three I will play will be [Loic] Remy, Diego Costa and [Eden] Hazard.

“If we park the bus with these three [in attack] I’m sure we will be ok.”

The Blues arrived to a huge reception at Sydney airport on Sunday morning, just hours after beating a Thai All-Stars XI in Bangkok.

And there will be no taking their foot off the throttle now, especially against a Sydney FC outfit that took the game to Tottenham on Saturday night.

“What I’ve seen the few times I’ve watched matches in the Australian league, there’s always a good atmosphere, nice stadiums and people very enthusiastic, the game very enthusiastic too,” Mourinho said.

“We want a very good match. We feel always responsibility. You cannot lose, you cannot just play for fun, you have to go for a result.

“We are still celebrating [the EPL title] yes, we are already thinking about next season yes, but Tuesday is our last game of the season as a club.

“We want to compete, we want to try and give a good show.

“It’s very important for us as a club, it’s been a very long time since Chelsea has been here and to come just a week after we are champions is even a bigger responsibility for us.”

Asked what he knew of the Hyundai A-League and Sydney FC, Chelsea skipper John Terry said: “We’ve watched little bits, a couple of players have come this way from the UK as well.

“We’ll watch the game they played against Spurs as well to get a better feel.

“We know the standard will be very good and it will be tough in front of a very hostile crowd as well, supporting both sides we hope.

“We had Schwarzy [ex-Socceroos goal-keeper Mark Schwarzer] there who told us about it every day.

“When you do see it and look at the stadiums and the fans they are real passionate, very much like the English supporters.”

I know we have an obligation but we better not play the first team players from start to finish!

I watched all the Sydney Tottenham game and it was not a bad match. Tottenham controlled it from start to finish but Sydney were far from disgraced. The support out there for the English teams is amazing. Our game will set a new stadium record of close to 85k they said. They are having to put more seats in for our visit.

That's pretty impressive to have more people watching us train than City had on average last season during their matches...

The atmosphere in the a-league is x10 better than the PL! Okay the game maybe draw 1/3 of the crowds in some instances, but the fans are amazing.

Can't wait for this game.

No press conference ahead of the game?

They already had one, Mourinho was joined by JT and Eden.

Most important thing he said was, Hazard-Costa-Remy will start the game.

It was today? If so, how nobody asked him about Costa..
