Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho feels that his side are a much better team than the one that finished third in the Premier League last season.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes that his side are a lot stronger than last season, but insists that there is still a long way to go in the Premier League title race.

The Blues maintained their unbeaten run in the top flight this campaign as they beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park on Saturday, thanks to strikes from Oscar and Cesc Fabregas.

Mourinho told reporters: "If we were in another league I would say immediately yes, but in the Premier League the only thing I can say is we can do it.

"In the Premier League it's difficult to say we are going to do it. There is a long way to go and there are very difficult games in front of us, so I don't want to say that.

"What I can say is we are a better team than last season; there is a clear evolution in our team and not just based on the fact we bought fantastic players. But to win the title? There is a long way to go."

Chelsea lead the Premier League by five points over second-place Manchester City.
