"We got a telling off at half-time and we came out and played excellently in the second half.
"It wasn't good enough in the first half but listen, we got the three points.
"We've been the best side all season. We deserve a lot of respect, we've been very good all year.
"Let's hope we win it on Sunday."
Once again last night, despite a tricky opening half, the Blues proved exactly why they are edging closer towards England's elite prize. The likes of Petr Cech, Didier Drogba, Ramires and Co. were outstanding in another key victory for the side.
There's no doubt about it, the Stamford Bridge outfit have been comfortably the best team in the division this term. Led by Mourinho, the spine of Thibaut Courtois, John Terry, Nemanja Matic and Co. have helped the Blues dominate their rivals all season long.
The attacking talents of Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas have also been sublime for the Blues, who hold a 13 point lead on their rivals.
Despite being handed the 'boring' tag, Mourinho's side have been ruthless all season long, so will be worthy winners of the league title.
The worry for the rest of the Premier League will no doubt be that Mourinho looks set to build an even stronger side for the 2015/16 campaign. It's up to Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United to respond after a brilliant season from Chelsea. Expect them to now go on and claim the title on home soil against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
