Premier League: Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho sees Burnley as a real threat
Last Updated: 18/08/14 7:25pm
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes that newly promoted Burnley could be a real threat in their opening game of the season.
Chelsea have a chance to get their title challenge under way as Monday Night Football returns. They face Burnley - back in the Premier League for the first time since 2010 - and Jose Mourinho feels their opponents pose a real threat.
‘’It’s a dangerous start because it’s a game that almost everybody expects you to win and almost nobody realises how difficult it can be.''
Burnley were runners-up in the Championship last season, securing automatic promotion with 93 points.
Mourinho feels that their habit of winning will continue as they start the new season.
''At the same time, Burnley is a winning team. It is a team that in the last month they won and won and won until they were promoted so the feeling is not a feeling of a team in trouble in the Premier League. It is the feeling of a team that comes as one of the champions in the Championship so I think they’re dangerous.''
