Toon face Chelsea this weekend.
"I want to beat him," said Pardew. "I don't go out for dinner with him or buy him wine. It's a professional relationship. But I do love him. He walks on water. Most weeks, there is a tactical masterclass from Mourinho.
"You don't get the record he's got of winning trophies unless you have a very, very sharp intellect. He's had a few managers working under him as I have had but they can never take your DNA as a manager."
