Mourinho predicts 'stronger' league

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he expects sides from outside the top four to take more points off the title contenders during the new Premier League season.

Mourinho was speaking to the press ahead of Chelsea's opening fixture against Swansea at Stamford Bridge. The Blues are bidding to win back-to-back titles for the first time since 2006.

Chelsea put nine goals past Swansea last season, with the Swans' only league win at Stamford Bridge coming in 1925 when they were still called Swansea Town.
