Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has backed Stoke City's appointment of Mark Hughes.

Chelsea meet Stoke this weekend.

"I think sometimes at a certain moment clubs have to care about style of play and the way you sell your product," Mourinho argued.

"They did well to change a philosophy that was getting points but not giving a future.

"They are a bit different, not so much, but they play better football and have kept many things from the past. It will be difficult, that's for sure."
