Crystal Palace midfielder Joe Ledley loves playing for manager Tony Pulis.

Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger have both championed Pulis's case for Manager of the Year.

Ledley agrees. "He has got to be," said Ledley, who joined the club in January. "Since he took over he has been remarkable. Not just against teams in the bottom half of the table but we have also picked up results against the big teams.

"It has been fantastic and he is a brilliant manager. I have had a couple of opportunities to work with him before but I think I have made the right decision now and we are all really happy working under him. Having a good manager makes everything a lot easier. He has put his belief in us and it is working out well."
