Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho is of the belief that his side’s late and narrow win over Everton earlier today was a compensation for their late draw at West Brom last week.
At The Hawthorns, the current premier league leaders were forced to a 1-1 draw as Victor Anichebe netted an 87th-minute equaliser for West Brom.
Today at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea could only manage an injury time win courtesy captain John Terry who had challenged Everton goalkeeper, Tim Howard from a Frank Lampard free-kick.
In his post match reaction, Mourinho said:
“The feeling when you lose points in the last minutes, like we lost two points against West Brom, is a bad feeling. When you win it’s the opposite. It’s basically a compensation of the points we lost against West Brom.
“‘For the last 15 minutes we were strong; we created; we pressed; we dominated. When you score (a late goal) you can speak about luck … but the reality is the boys chased that.
“A point for them (Everton) is good. A point for us is not good, and in the end maybe we deserved it.”
That win against Everton ensured Chelsea remains at the summit of the Premier League table for this weekend at least.
