Jose Mourinho on the win, Cahill's injury and Drogba's future


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says Tottenham Hotspur didn't deserve such a heavy scoreline against his side.

Spurs started the game brightly but the Blues showed their superiority when Eden Hazard and Didier Drogba scored two goals in four minutes to give the hosts a comfortable lead in the first half.

Loic Remy scored his third goal of the season in the second half to finish the game in style as Chelsea continue to dominate the English Premier League.

"We played against a very good team and they showed that during some periods in the game," Mourinho said.

"They started better than us and should have scored before us, but after our first goal our team became more stable and confident and we controlled the game.

"I'm really happy with the points, performance and spirit of the players. It's too heavy a result, though, for Tottenham."

Asked about Gary Cahill's injury, Mourinho said: "No concussion, no need for special care.

"He was just feeling maybe afraid of heading the ball. When a player is a bit afraid it was not good. It was a good opportunity for Kurt Zouma under pressure."

Striker Didier Drogba rolled back the years to demonstrate he can still be an asset in Mourinho's team and the Portuguese says the Ivorian will continue at Chelsea even after he retires.

"The important thing is he is here and will finish his career with Chelsea," said Mourinho.

"It looks, for me, that he's going to stay doing other things when he finishes his career.

"First of all he's a team player. He's not selfish, not vain. He's a humble guy who plays for the team, fights for the team. He's fantastic.

"I was expecting exactly this. I played against him at Real Madrid and I could feel the kind of potential he still has."
