Jose Mourinho: "The best team won"

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho claims that the "best team won" in his side's 2-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield this afternoon.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has expressed his belief that "the best team won" in his side's 2-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield this afternoon.

A Steven Gerrard slip allowed Demba Ba to give Chelsea the lead right on the stroke of half time, while a late counter as Liverpool pushed for an equaliser saw Willian tap home for a second.

Chelsea defended with numbers behind the ball for large periods of the match, leading Brendan Rodgers to criticise Mourinho's time-wasting tactics, but the Portuguese boss believes that his team were faultless in their performance.

"The best team won, in my opinion. The team played brilliantly. Every player was magnificent. No mistakes. I think it was a fantastic performance by my players," Mourinho told reporters.

"I am not looking for credit. I am very happy with my players, they know how pleased I am with their work and that is what they need from me. Time-wasting. What's that? You never spoke about this when we played lot of matches this season."

The result moves Chelsea back to within two points of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.
