José Mourinho Celebrates

A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho was pleased with the manner of Chelsea’s win in the League Cup quarter-final against Derby.

The Blues were comfortable 3-1 winners against the side looking to break into the top flight for next season.

“We played in a very professional way and controlled the game for most of the time. They fought to the end and they had a good period after they scored when they were able to put us in trouble.,” said the boss.

Mourinho also provided an assessment of injuries to defender Kurt Zouma and striker Didier Drogba.

“Zouma is fine, he was just a bit dizzy and had some blood in his mouth - Didier Drogba went over on his ankle. With his mentality, I believe he can get over it before the game at Stoke on Monday,” Mourinho told the BBC.

Mourinho also gave Chelsea fans a taste of what they can expect from the club in the January transfer window; nothing.

Mourinho revealed to talkSPORT that he’s happy with the state of what he calls a very good squad.

“We have a short squad but we’ve got good players, some younger, some older, but the squad is very, very good,” he said.
