Jose Mourinho on the win, Willian's injury and Ruben Loftus-Cheek's performance


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says he will not be carried away after his side's 4-0 win over Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Champions League.

The Blues were in desperate need of a positive result after struggling in their first five Premier League games of the season.

And they didn't disappoint as they produced a brilliant performance at Stamford Bridge.

"I am happy with the result and the performance," Mourinho told BT Sport.

"The same way I was not in hell with bad results, I am not in heaven we won a game.

"It was a good victory, you could see from minute one we were going to win the game. Missing the penalty was a good thing to test the team, we must be really strong to believe and the players have played very well, they showed a good attitude, good with the ball, it was a good victory.

"Good individual performance helps the players' self esteem and confidence, good collective performances are also good.

"I know some experts will say Maccabi are not a top team, I agree, but they are a Champions League team and to beat a team you need to play well and we played well.

"We were good in the different phases of the game.

"Ruben Loftus-Cheek showed personality, he wanted to play.

"We played him and Fabregas because they are fast thinking, fast moving the ball and that helps the team because we found lots of attacking situations.I am really happy with his performance.

"The most important thing was to win. If some players had good individual performances, good for them, if some score a goal that was also important.

"The only negative thing was Willian's injury. Apart from that everything was positive. I have a lot of thinking always. I try to read the game before it starts, and I have a lot of thinking before Arsenal."
