Jose Mourinho on the win, Diego Costa and making the top four


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his side should have scored more goals against Norwich City on Saturday.

The Blues took all three points after a hard-fought win against the Canaries at Stamford Bridge.

And according to the Portuguese, the win is a step forward in his team's quest to end the season in the top four.

"We didn't deserve the heartbeat of the last four minutes," Mourinho said.

"We deserved to be enjoying the last four minutes with a 2-0, 3-0 or 4-0 result, but we couldn't. Once more the relation between how we played and the number of goals we scored wasn't good.

"We should have scored three, four or five but we didn't. We could cope with the pressure in the last five minutes because it was there, I felt it and the players felt it. We coped well with that and we got a result that we obviously needed very much.

"It's a bit of a relief. I'm not nervous on the bench but you get a bit disappointed with the way things go. After the goal Zouma hit the bar, if he didn't touch the ball it's a goal.

"Then in the last four minutes you are there and you think that maybe we'd score in our own goal. So, yes, there is a bit of relief but fundamentally I'm happy for the players because they are working well and they deserved it.

"I know for sure so many pundits we have were strikers and they know the feeling when you don't score, you get heavier. For every game you don't score you have five kilos more and the pressure is there.

"In the first half he missed two chances, the second one was a big one, so it was important for him. He's working well, he's a happy guy and tries everything. He's positive. If I had to choose somebody to score the winning goal I would go with him.

"We have to go game after game. The fourth position is not an impossible mission.

"To recover points to teams who are normally in the middle of the table and to catch one of the teams who will have a bit of a collapse for sure, because everybody will have one, is a possible target."
