Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has hit out at Manchester City after comments from the Tottenham manager; claiming that the Premier League table toppers are the best team in the world.

Tim Sherwood joined the ever growing praise for Man City after his side were drubbed 5-1 on wednesday night, claiming that City were the best team on the planet.

However, these comments seemed to have ruffled the feathers of Jose Mourinho, who insists that City will get found out in Europe.

The Chelsea boss suggested that Manuel Pellegrini's side will meet their match against Barcelona, who they meet in just over two weeks time, in the last 16 of the Champions League.

He said: " Maybe, for the Tottenham manager, the planet is England."

"You will see in the Champions League. You will see in a couple of months."

Jose then went on to suggest that City have more game changing decisions gone their way than anyone else.

He said: ""They are lucky The reality is they have many crucial decisions in their favour."

"Against Liverpool, the (Raheem) Sterling 'goal'. The penalty on (Luis) Suarez. Against Newcastle the goal that is a clear goal."

"I repeat, because I don't want to be misinterpreted (it is) just pure coincidence."

Mourinho takes his men to the Etihad on Monday night in what will be a crunch match at the top of the table.

City have been unstoppable at home so far this term, with a perfect record of 11 wins in 11 games, with an incredible goal-rate of more than four a match.
