Moyes has never beaten Mourinho in nine attempts in his managerial career - eight of which came during his time at Everton.

He will try for the 10th time on Sunday when Manchester United head to Stamford Bridge in the Sky Live fixture and Moyes has nothing but respect for Jose Mourinho's successes across Europe over the past decade.

"I have no problems at all with Jose," said Moyes. "We were never going to sell Wayne (Rooney), so my relationship with him has been fine.

"He has done a brilliant job wherever he has been. He is someone who catches people's imagination.

"The manager I have taken over from, Sir Alex, is undoubtedly the best of his generation and longer. Jose could well go on to be the best of his generation because he has been so successful in a lot of the jobs he has been in.

"I have only got admiration for Jose, nothing else. But I am competing against him and I am going to try and beat him every time I play against him. That has not changed."

Watch an interview with Gary Cahill on Weekend Warm-Up from 6pm on Friday evening. Chelsea v Manchester United is live on Sky Sports 1 on Sunday, kick-off 4pm

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
