Jose Mourinho satisfied with Manchester City point

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho admits that he was pleased that his side earned a point in their Premier League clash with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that he was pleased to take a point from his side's clash with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

The Blues went ahead in the 71st minute through Andre Schurrle after Pablo Zabaleta was dismissed for the Citizens.

Mourinho's men were denied all three points by former player Frank Lampard as he struck four minutes from time to earn Manuel Pellegrini's side the draw.

He told reporters: "It was a big game. I think maybe in the end 1-1 was a fair result. We went 1-0 up after they had a player sent off and Diego [Costa] hit the post, but then they had a reaction.

"Even playing with one player less, they had a reaction and equalised. The conclusion we made in the dressing room is that we came here as leaders with two points more than the second-placed team.

"We played in the champions' house, and we leave with three points more than second, so it is a good weekend for us."

Chelsea are top of the Premier League with 13 points from five matches this season.
