Palace No2 Kemp laughs off Mourinho "19th century" claims

Crystal Palace assistant-manager Dave Kemp has scoffed at Jose Mourinho's complaints about "19th century football" in the past week.

The Chelsea boss made the claim after West Ham United left Stamford Bridge with a precious point.

Kemp laughed at the remark and said: "If you're playing 19th-Century football in the 21st Century everybody should have all the answers, shouldn't they?

"They've had 200 years to think about it, surely you could come up with a tactic to beat it?

"I'm sure Sam (Allardyce) is patting himself on the back that he's upset one of the big boys and that's it. That's the position we're in."
