Hughton said: "I'm looking forward to playing against Chelsea with the quality and the array of talent they have.
"It's always a nice thought to be coming against the best managers. I think he has been great for our game. He speaks very well about the English game.
"He has an incredible CV and is used to managing winning teams and that is the biggest challenge. There is no doubt there is something special about him. His CV says that. He's very charismatic and you can say all those things about him, but the important thing is his CV. He's a manager who is used to winning."
