Jose Mourinho described his team’s 3-1 victory against Manchester United as ‘a big win’ and hailed the performance of hat-trick hero Samuel Eto’o.
The Chelsea boss also admitted that United were unfortunate to find themselves 2-0 down at the break after causing the hosts problems in the first half.
Mourinho said: “I think it is a big win and deserved, yes. It was hard for them to be losing 2-0 at half time. They started better than us, they had a good initiative.
“The second half was different. For 25-30 minutes we had very good control until we dropped back and they reacted.
“Normally we produce and produce and then it is hard for us to score. This time with the first shot we scored.
“The second goal was the killer in the box I know from many years ago – and it looks like Samuel Eto’o is coming back.”
