Chelsea 2-1 Manchester City Torres is definetelty Mourinho’s best man on top of the foward line. The Spaniard delivered  Stamford Bridge at the last minute, following a mistake in City’s defense… Jose Mourinho speaks: First of all, I feel sympathy with them because I know how it is to lose in the last minute,’. ‘It’s a very difficult feeling, but of course it’s a great moment for us. In the first half we played fantastic against a fantastic team, which isn’t easy. We were better than them which isn’t easy. We could have scored three goals in the first half, we were dominant, we played well, we played beautiful. ‘In the second half we played against a great team, with a tornado arriving, the wind was very strong against us and pushed us back. They scored a goal and after that the game was 50-50, it could go one way or another. ‘When everybody was expecting a draw, even ourselves, I tried to play Samuel and give a bit more but I didn’t want to risk too much. It was the kind of game that you wanted to win but you didn’t want to lose, because if you lose it you lose points against a title contender, so I wanted to take a risk but with balance. ‘They didn’t want to either because they changed a striker for a striker and put Kolarov in midfield, they were happy with a point. The goal comes through a very intelligent action by Fernando. It was a misunderstanding between Joe Hart and Nastastic but Fernando was very clever with the way he did it.’ ‘Of course the points are important, but you can win and say we didn’t play well, we were very lucky, they were dominant and Petr Cech was the man of the match, but another thing is the way we played in the first half. ‘We played very well, in the first 10 minutes we were very sharp, very technical with a good dynamic. We were changing positions and not afraid to lose possession, even though we knew how strong they are on the counter attack. If we can play like this against Man City, why can’t we play like that in every match in the Premier League? That’s the self-esteem we need. ‘The important thing is that we have this number of points (20) and we’ve played Manchester United away, Tottenham away, Everton away, City at home. Next week we go to Newcastle, it’s very difficult but we are there, we are not far and the team is improving.’ On Fernando Torres ‘It was a fantastic performance and even better because there was an easy chance missed and that makes it even more valuable because many times when a striker misses an easy chance he is affected for the rest of the game. ‘That was the moment when he decided he would be the man of the match. The fans were amazing and supported him a lot, they see the way he works for the team, he’s sharp and powerful and we were happy for him. www.chelseafc.com Manuel Pellegrini reacts: “We are losing stupid points. In the three defeats we have had away, we did not deserve to lose one of them”. “I don’t know if it’s the worst way to lose but it is certainly one of the worst ways. We played very well in the second half and we had control of the game. “I don’t think now is the time to discuss who was responsible. We will look at this in the week and analyse it then. “We played a very good game. Chelsea had some good chances and they hit the crossbar but in the second half, we had some good chances to score too.” www.mcfc.com
