Chelsea boss says ‘humble’ team deserved Manchester United win

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho expressed his delight after securing a 3-1 victory over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

“I’m delighted with the three points,” the Portuguese coach told reporters after the full-time whistle.

“I think we deserved to win,” he continued, before adding: “but I don’t think we deserved to be winning 2-0 at half-time.”

Samuel Eto’o scored both of Chelsea’s goals in the first half to hand the hosts a precious 2-0 lead, before the Cameroon striker completed his hat-trick minutes after the restart.

Mourinho reserved special praise for the 32-year-old, who arrived at Stamford Bridge in the summer transfer window, as well as his “humble” side.

“Of course I love when one of my players [Eto'o] becomes a special player in the match,” he added. “It’s a fantastic moment for Samuel.”

Mourinho conceded that United were the better team during the opening stages, but he had no doubt that the best team secured the three points on the day.

The former Real Madrid boss added that United captain Nemanja Vidic, who was sent off for a challenge on Eden Hazard, perhaps deserved an “orange card” rather than a straight red.

Meanwhile, he admitted that Manchester United now faced a “difficult” task to fight their way back into the Premier League title race.
