"I said the game would open up in the second half, and we'd have a chance," Pulis said.

"I've just got to carry on with my business, show my personal pride and professionalism and make sure that those lads are prepared to win for the team and for the fans and for this great club.

"When the comments come from a player like Eden it's normal because he's not the kind of player to sacrifice himself for the team," Mourinho said ahead of Sunday's match against Norwich City.

"Normally you get these kind of comments from players like him, from players that can't resolve a problem like we had in the first goal.

"Eden is the kind of player that is not so mentally ready to look back to his left-back and to leave his life for him."
