Jose Mourinho happy with points, says it was a safe performance


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was delighted after his side's win against Maribor on Tuesday.

The Blues eased past Ante Simundza's side by 6-0 with the Portuguese describing the performance as a "safe" one for the Blues.

"It was good," Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"Obviously when you score a third before half-time the opponents were not strong enough to have a reaction in the second-half and to create problems for you, so it was a safe performance.

"I think we were very, very strong when we had to be very strong, which was at the beginning of the game, and after that we had the happiness to play.

"The players kept enjoying the game, playing with ambition and trying to score goals, so three important points."

Chelsea lead Group G on seven points and will face Maribor away from home on November 5.
