Jose Mourinho delighted by “Arsenal destruction” on Saturday

"I was so happy with the approach, we came to kill and in 10 minutes we destroyed them."

Chelsea manager saw his team fly into an early two-goal lead and they ended up winning by a 6-0 scoreline

The pre-match build-up to Saturday’s match at Stamford Bridge had mainly centred on the fact that it was Arsene Wenger’s 1000th game in charge of Arsenal, although Chelsea stole the headlines after enjoying their most emphatic victory of the season.

Early goals from Samuel Eto’o and Andre Schurrle set the Blues on their way and the Gunners had no answers to a lively home attack which pleased Jose Mourinho who had instructed his team to go out and “kill” the opposition.

He told reporters: “‘We had 10 amazing minutes and with that you can win the game and show everybody that you won’t give a chance to any opponent.

“I was so happy with the approach, we came to kill and in 10 minutes we destroyed them.

“After that first 10 minutes, the job was easy. We pressed them high and well and attacked the space very quickly.

“We got the result with some numbers which are special for our fans, which makes it even more beautiful.

“Last Saturday (in the defeat at Aston Villa) the momentum was broken, and now we are trying to build more momentum.

“Man City have everything in their hands, Liverpool have everything in their hands.

“Nobody plays Champions League from the top four, they have just the Premier League matches to play and we have at least two big Champions League matches to play in between.”

Chelsea have not been renowned for scoring large volumes of goals in matches this season, although this was a result which boosted their goal difference and left Arsenal’s title hopes in tatters.
