Newcastle United caretaker-manager John Carver has revealed his tremendous respect for Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho is one of the greatest football managers of all time and the most successful in terms of trophies in the 21st century.
Carver will be pitting his wits against the Portuguese on Saturday when Chelsea host Newcastle at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League, and he is under no illusion about the task at hand.
However, the 49-year-old has faith in his players and is confident of an upset in London.

Chelsea will head into the Premier League encounter as favourites, and it will take something special from Newcastle to pick up the three points at the Bridge.
