Mourinho will be looking to add to a 60-game unbeaten run at Stamford Bridge when Steve Bruce's side visit, but he feels it is a far tougher challenge than playing one of last season's survivors.

The Portuguese feels Chelsea's start to the 2013-14 campaign is a tough one, and they are the back in action in midweek as well when they take on Aston Villa in a game rescheduled because of the UEFA Super Cup against Bayern Munich at the end of the month.

"It's always a difficult start," Mourinho said. "We have to play two days after against Aston Villa, after that we have to go to Old Trafford, so our start is a very difficult one.

"I don't like to play against teams that come from the lower division, because when they come they come with a fantastic mentality.

"They come as winners, they come as a team that week after week is winning matches and winning points.

"It's different to a team that survives in the Premier League on the last day, they come with a fantastic attitude.

"We have to try to win, but there are people that say that a bad start is better than a good start. Of course, I prefer to start good. But the start is difficult."

You can see Chelsea take on Hull City on Sunday on Sky Sports 1 HD from 3:30pm and on Sky 3D as well from 3:45pm

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
