Mourinho is world's best - Allardyce

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce says Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is the best club manager in the world.

Speaking before the two sides meet at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day, Allardyce says he expects his side to gain a result against the league leaders.

Currently fourth in the Premier League table, the high-flying Hammers have already won nine Premier League matches in 2014-15, after winning only 11 in the whole of 2013-14.
