Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has told reporters that he is pleased with his strikers, after Samuel Eto'o and Fernando Torres both found the net this week.  

"I'm happy with all the strikers," said Mourinho.

"Last week was a positive week for Samuel and Fernando because they scored goals."

Eto'o was the first Chelsea striker to open his account in the league this season in the Blues' 4-1 victory at home to Cardiff City last Saturday.

Fernando Torres then scored twice in Germany on Tuesday night as Mourinho's side beat Schalke 3-0 in Group E of the UEFA Champions League.

Demba Ba has yet to score for the club this season but Mourinho is happy with all of their efforts so far.

"They were not scoring goals but they were working really hard and doing a good job for the team.

"There are different ways of contributing. Sometimes scoring goals, which is the most important thing of course.

Mourinho was fined £8,000 by the FA on Thursday for complaining to the fourth official about time-wasting, during the 4-1 win against Cardiff.

The Portuguese boss was sent to the stands for his protests and despite disagreeing with the decision, and he has no issue with his punishment.

"The referee wrote the truth. He was correct and honest," he added.

"I am still convinced I shouldn't be sent off - but that's okay."
