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

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
