Video: Chelsea 2-2 Swansea - Jose Mourinho on Thibaut Courtois' red card


Chelsea were fortunate not to become the first-ever Premier League champions to start their title defence with defeat after Swansea threatened an opening-day upset. A celebratory atmosphere remained around Stamford Bridge as the club basked in the afterglow of last season's success - a feat Jose Mourinho, fresh from signing a new deal, warned would not be repeated unless they showed the "quality and determination of champions". The Blues were found wanting in the first department against Garry Monk's impressive side, although they showed no little determination to secure a 2-2 draw after Thibaut Courtois' sending off.
