The Blues boss praised his side's display of teamwork, but claimed not to have clearly seen Fernando Torres's controversial goal, which replays revealed was offside.
"It was a very entertaining game for the supporters. We started very well, certainly until they equalised which knocked us back a bit," he said.
"We kept them under pressure and luckily got the equaliser which galvanised us and we kept going forward. I've not seen the replay [of the Torres goal]. I looked at the linesman straight away and he gave the goal.
"I'm very happy with the squad. We have a good team and we showed that. I must give compliments to Reading as they worked very hard."
