Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas believes Jose Mourinho's return to Chelsea will make them title favourites next season. The Real Madrid coach is expected to be confirmed as Chelsea manager in the coming days.

AVB said: "I think Chelsea will be the team to beat next year, bearing in mind the manager we expect to come in and the strengthening of a very good squad. The reference will come from Chelsea.

"But next year could be a good year to throw yourself into the race for the title, bearing in mind the changes at the top."
