Cape Town - Following his side's demolition of the Premier League champions on Monday, West Brom manager Tony Pulis insists any criticism of Chelsea is
"It's a great finish, we will finish 13th in the table but I
don't think anything should be taken away from the team we played," he
"The team we've played have been by far the best team in
England. They have won the league by a country mile and they have been much
better than anyone else.
"Although we have won this game, all the praise should go to
Jose, his coaching staff, the people of Chelsea and the players.
"Jose was very good. I've managed against him twice and
managed to beat him twice with Palace and West Brom.
"He was very gracious in defeat and for all what we have
done, they have been worthy champions. They are a fantastic football club with
wonderful players and for some people to criticise them is unbelievable.
"We were so on edge after we lost at home to QPR and
Leicester but the lads have bounced back.
"The attitude has been wonderful, we got the breaks in this
game, we played really well at times and defended well. The discipline was good
and we made it very difficult for Chelsea."
