Former Chelsea man Frank Leboeuf insists that Chelsea will repeat as Premier League champions.
Jose Mourinho refuses to fuel transfer rumours, declining to comment on suspected left back signing, John Stones, a week ahead of the start of the season.

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma, who has also played in the holding midfield role, has told manager Jose Mourinho that he is happy to fill in wherever his services are required.
