Chelsea boss Mourinho: I can win with kids. I've done it before

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he won't hesitate throwing in the kids this season.

Mourinho is ready to use his Stamford Bridge boys in the title race.

The manager said: "Any time I had young players with conditions to become top players and play for the first team, I did it.

"At Porto, Carlos Alberto is still the youngest player to score a goal in a Champions League final.

"In Italy - Davide Santon. He is now at Newcastle but at 17 he was playing for me at Inter against Man United in the last-16 of the Champions League.

"Here at Chelsea it was Claude Makelele on the bench and John Obi Mikel, at 18 years old, playing.

"So any time I have the chance, I'm not afraid to go for it."
