Jose Mourinho on victory against Swansea City, insists trophies are a must


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho described the 5-0 away win against Swansea City as the "perfect game".

The Blues opened the scoring in the early stages of the game and never looked back as they took all three points to open a five-point lead at the top of the English Premier League.

"It was the perfect game, everything went in our direction," Mourinho said.

"To score in the first minute immediately gives a different game. To be 4-0 up at half-time is not game over, especially in the Premier League, but it's a good situation to control it and we did that in the second half.

"The team is playing with high quality and with a clear identity of playing. Sometimes teams are good and play well but without a clear identity. This team all season have been trying to go in a certain direction where we have a certain kind of way to play football."

The Portuguese was delighted with the football showcased by his players but says his team will not make history unless they win silverware.

"There is no history without titles," Mourinho added.

"If we play fantastically well but we don't win cups I think in 20 years' time nobody will remember this team. Obviously everybody wants the team to play very well; I am the first one - but we have to win competitions.

"This team is a young team with lots of years in front of them. We are trying this season and we are going to try until our limits to make some history by winning something."
