Chelsea boss Mourinho: It was a very good result for us

Mourinho said: “It was a very good result for us. We pushed the defence up, scored a few goals, played with a good spirit and dominated the game.

“After a run of three league games without a win it is nice to get one. It has been a dark period in that we haven’t won, but a light one because we haven’t lost despite all our problems.

“We have missed our special players recently. You saw the way Robben played today – imagine if we had been able to call upon him over Christmas, a lot of the results might have been different.”
