A lot more difficult this time around
Claudio Ranieri's side shocked the football world last season, defying the odds to win the Premier League by an impressive 10 points.
However the pressure will be on them this campaign to produce similar results, but speaking in his press conference ahead of their clash, Mourinho believes that they can cope with the expectation.
He said: "I think it will be a different season for them but I think they can cope with the situation" as they have "a new experience playing in the Champions League, which changes the profile of their season."
Mourinho continued: "But they have a better squad, they've bought players, the manager is good and experienced" and "I think they can cope. I hope they can cope. I wish everything goes well for them."
Country were dreams are made
Many will argue that the Foxes' title heroics is the biggest shock in sport, but Mourinho believes that Premier League is the only one where this could happen, and be accepted.
He said: "This is the only country where everybody wants this to happen, and it's the only country where the football structures allow this to happen" as he believes "in other countries the powerful clubs don't want this to happen -- they don't want to share the money, the television rights."
Mourinho concluded: "In the other countries they want to be comfortable and know that they are always the top clubs, in the Champions League" as they "want it to be a competition of two, three or four and, if possible, just a competition of one" and admitted "this is a special country."
