West Ham player Adrian has a word of warning for Jose Mourinho

Upton Park

Adrian has been looking ahead to West Ham United's mid-week match against Chelsea.

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian has been speaking to the club’s official website ahead of the Hammers’ clash with Chelsea.

The two London sides face off on Wednesday, with the Blues likely to be buzzing from their recent Capital One Cup victory against Tottenham Hotspur.

But the West Ham stopper is hoping his recent history when facing a side managed by Jose Mourinho can be repeated later this week.

“I don’t know if Mourinho remembers me but when I play against him I have got some good results – a win with Real Betis and a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge last season.

“Personally, I feel good when I play against Mourinho.”

The West Ham ‘keeper has been one of the club’s standout stars this season and his confidence when coming up against the current Premier League leaders will be welcomed by his teammates and supporters alike.

The 28-year-old has made 31 appearances for West Ham in this campaign but he will want to put the disappointment of a 3-1 home defeat against Crystal Palace behind him, and what better way to do that than by keeping the likes of Diego Costa and Eden Hazard at bay?

It may be easier said than done, but it is clear West Ham have at least one player who will relish the chance to face the Portuguese manager.
