Jose Mourinho expects tough Leicester City challenge

Jose Mourinho warns his Chelsea side that Leicester City will have "great belief" when they visit Stamford Bridge in the Premier League this afternoon.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has said that he expects Leicester City to pose a problem for his side at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

Chelsea are seen as the overwhelming favourites to take all three points against the newly-promoted Foxes this afternoon, but Mourinho has stressed that the away side are a dangerous proposition.

"Leicester have one defeat in the last 28 to 29 matches, so their mentality and belief must be great," Mourinho is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"I was happy with the display at Burnley but not over the moon, it was good but not for the whole 90 minutes."

Leicester won the Championship title last season after accumulating a mammoth 102 points over the course of the season.
