Jose Mourinho on the win and a "different" period ahead


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was satisfied after his side's 2-0 win against West Ham United on Boxing Day.

The Blues consolidated their lead at the top of the English Premier League with an excellent display against Sam Allardyce's side with John Terry and Diego Costa getting the two goals in the 31st and 62nd minute of the game.

"There's no perfection but we played very well against a difficult team," Mourinho said.

"We played well in two different versions; the first against a defensive side, and we were very good, we moved the ball, there was a good dynamic and lots of chances.

"In the second half we played against an attacking team that made changes by putting on faster players and playing direct balls into space. We coped well and found ways to counter attack.

"It's very important for a team to identify different moments of the game and to be able to adapt. Today was a good example of that, the players did very well."

Chelsea will be back in action on Sunday when they face Southampton away from home and the Portuguese admits it's not easy to deal with the large number of upcoming matches.

"My players are human like all the others but the point is that every match is fundamental, there are no better points than others, every match is an important match.

"We played Stoke on Monday and after that we had three days to recover the players well. Everybody was in condition to play. I made just one change, Oscar for Mikel, because I wanted to give a different design to the team.

"We play in two days, after that we play at Tottenham three days later and then against Watford, so this is a different period."
