Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was in the crowd at the GQ Men of the Year Awards on Tuesday night, but probably didn't expect an inquest into his tactics.

The Portuguese boss may be under pressure after picking up just four points from his opening four games but was enjoying a night in which he received the Editor's Special Award.

Unfortunately for Mourinho, actor and comedian Will Ferrell was determined to put the spotlight back onto the pitch.

The Hollywood star, best known for his roles on Saturday Night Live, Anchorman, Step Brothers and more, is a famous Chelsea fan.

He is often seen in a Chelsea shirt, has met players and visited Stamford Bridge on several occasions - he even acted as the team's 'captain' during a pre-season tour of the US a few years ago.

Accepting an award for Comedian of the Year the actor first feigned tears before turning to address Mourinho.

"Keep playing defence, man," he said. "Keep playing seven guys in the box.

"I love it."

Chelsea return to action away to Everton on Saturday.
