Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho will be in England tonight.

The Special One is jetting in to be at Eastlands to watch Roberto Mancini's Manchester City in action in the tea-time kick-off against Queens Park Rangers.

The Real Madrid boss has decided to get to work early, after his side were drawn in the same Champions League group as City.

A close pal said: "Jose is certainly wasting no time in doing his homework on City.

"He's flying in to watch them in person to see for himself what City are like these days.

"And no doubt to work out how best to beat them when they meet in the Champions League later this season."
