The match marked Terry's 600th for the Blues.
Mourinho said: "What's more important than the 600 matches is that he's played every minute of the 19 Premier League matches this season, which is amazing for a player that last season a lot of people thought was going down.
"He's showing fantastic quality, I'm happy for him. The players I had in the past I have a special connection with them, but I don't give them positions because I like them or because I have a relationship with them. At the moment, everything he's getting isn't because he's my man or my friend, or because I respect him from my first period here. He's getting these minutes because he's playing fantastically well."
