Brighton boss Poyet: AVB cannot meet expectations of Chelsea owner Abramovich

Brighton boss Gus Poyet cannot see Andre Villas-Boas ever satisfying Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

Poyet thinks ­Villas-Boas is likely to follow Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti in falling short. The ­reason? Barcelona.

Brighton boss Poyet said: "Every year I'm saying yes (Chelsea can win it) ­because they've got the quality.

"But the most difficult task is to beat Barcelona because that's the most difficult task facing every single football club. They are the best team ever.

"I played against an ­unbelievable ­Barcelona team - ­Johan Cruyff's dream team.

"But it's nothing ­compared to this one - this one is unique."
