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 unwarranted.

"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 said.

"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."
