Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis has hailed Jose Mourinho ahead of Chelsea's visit to Selhurst Park this weekend.

However, despite labelling Mourinho as "charming", Pulis said he is looking to test his temperament come Saturday.

He said: "“I met him after the game at Stamford Bridge and he is a very interesting character.

“That time I had with him he was very charming but they had just beaten us so it would be nice to see on Saturday if he is as charming if we win.

“Jose is one of the elite managers in the world. He has managed the great teams, and the great teams need to win and he does that for them on home soil and away."

He added: “Out of all the teams in the Champions League this year I’ve always fancied Chelsea to go the furthest because of his experience and because of the way he prepares his teams.”
