Jose Mourinho: We beat one of the biggest teams in the world


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was full of gratitude to his players after an important home win against Manchester United.

In typical Mourinho fashion, the Blues fended off Manchester United's domination with Eden Hazard keeping his cool to give his side the lead in the 38th minute of the game.

The win moves Chelsea closer to the title as they open a ten-point gap at the top of the table.

"The celebrations were because we beat one of the biggest teams in the world," Mourinho said.

"I understand that. The players gave everything to win the game and they felt the result of the work they'd done all week to prepare.

"The team were fantastic. I'm the one that knows how fantastic they were because the game was exactly what we wanted. When you manage to play the game you want to play, it's fantastic.

"The players were magnificent, on top of that Eden [Hazard] had that magic the top players have, especially in big matches.

"Obviously he was fundamental for us but Cahill made an amazing block on Falcao, John Terry was amazing, the keeper was there for us all the time, Azpilicueta was for me the best player on the pitch and Ivanovic was fantastic.

"Matic worked like an animal, Zouma put Fellaini out of the game, our number 11 [Drogba] was another animal, fighting against two kids young enough to be his sons.

"Hazard was what you know, Oscar worked fantastically well, Ramires came in and gave us what we needed, Mikel came in for two minutes and held the ball."
