The Blues won their fourth successive match in the Premier League as they kept alive their hopes of finishing inside the top four.
"I've got to give a lot of credit to the boys in front of me and Sylvain [Distin]," he told the club's official website. "They did a fantastic job today and a lot of credit goes to them.
