Before the game, Mourinho spoke about Chelsea's failings this season.

 "I promise you I am fine. I am not happy. I am not used to losing so many times but I am adapting to the situation.

"You cannot expect me to say it is all smiles, laughing and jokes. When people are not getting success we work for, we are going to be frustrated.


"We know what we are - champions of England. The fans sing that. Nobody can steal what we are or our trophies or our history, you can try but you can't do that.

"When you are used to winning all the time, then when you don't it is a strange feeling. Some people deal well with it, others not as good."
