Mourinho-Everton Aug2014Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, has expressed his relief after a nine-goal thriller at Goodison Park on Saturday, which saw the Blues beat Everton 6-3.

Diego Costa and Branislav Ivanovic scored in quick succession, as Chelsea raced into a two-goal lead within three minutes. Kevin Mirallas pulled one before the break.

In the second half, Eden Hazard’s cross deflected off Seamus Coleman past Tim Howard, but Steven Naismith prodded past Thibaut Courtois almost immediately to give Roberto Martinez’s men a glimmer of hope.

Nemanja Matic and Samuel Eto’o scored for the two teams, before late goals from Ramires and Costa settled it.

“It was wonderful for everyone at the stadium and watching television around the world – but not for me. We cannot make so many defensive mistakes,” Mourinho told BBC Sport.

“We want to improve as a team by keeping our defensive strength and quality and improving in other areas. Today we showed we are improving in other areas but not keeping the balance in defence.

“The team likes to have the ball, that is very important but we need to keep our defensive balance and not commit mistakes. Wednesday afternoon we spent 90 minutes defending corners and free-kicks but today we conceded from a free-kick so I cannot be happy with the ridiculous goal we conceded.

“There is 35 more games, three is nothing.”
