Jose Mourinho on Cesc Fabregas and the "amazing" John Terry


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was full of praise for midfielder Cesc Fabregas and defender John Terry after the 0-0 draw away at Arsenal.

The Spain international was playing his first game at the Emirates Stadium after joining Chelsea during last summer's transfer window and had to suffer a bombardment of boos whenever on the ball.

But the Portuguese says the 27-year-old was not affected by the hostile reception he received by the Arsenal fans.

"He [Cesc Fabregas] is the last guy to be nervous," Mourinho said after the game.

"He was very confident and we played him in position where he could have more control of the game, but with a yellow card it is a difficult position to play for such a long time.

"In the second half we put Ramires there and Cesc in a more offensive position where he doesn't have so many defensive actions to risk a possible second yellow, but his was a solid performance like everyone in my team."

Mourinho was also delighted with the performance of captain John Terry.

"John Terry was amazing, he's had fantastic performances in the five or six years we have worked together and some of them with goals," he added.

"There was a great performance at Highbury in my first season but today everything was clean – his reading of the game, giving cover all around the defensive line, his interceptions with a pass.

"The team was phenomenal but John was one step ahead of every player."
