Lambert eager to face Mourinho test

PAUL LAMBERT will relish another touchline tussle with Jose Mourinho tonight when Aston Villa entertain league leaders Chelsea.

The pair had a heated exchange when Villa lost 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in August, but Lambert insisted that there was nothing in it.

"We had a laugh and a joke which is what you normally do in football," he said. "There was a lot of banter but nothing aggressive. We had a drink together after the game."
