Mel says West Brom want their Mourinho revenge

West Bromwich Albion boss Pepe Mel says his players will want revenge against Chelsea after their draw earlier this season at Stamford Bridge.

Amid ugly scenes in the tunnel afterwards, Mourinho branded Jonas Olsson a 'Mickey Mouse' player and stewards and coaching staff had to separate warring factions from both clubs.

Asked whether such a barb could motivate his squad, Mel said: "Yes, I think it is possible. But the best motivation for playing against Chelsea is Chelsea. It's possible to win. Mourinho was the coach of Real Madrid and we beat them 1-0 when I was at Betis."
