Chelsea boss Mourinho impressed by Norwich power

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho praised Norwich City after victory at Carrow Road.

Mourinho feels there is nothing wrong with playing to your strengths.

He said: "I think that if you try to play like other people do, and you have no players for that, you are very stupid.

"I won the league in Spain with 100 points and my team were not playing like Barcelona were. If you try to play like someone else does, you never reach their level.

"You have to try and be the best to the style of your players. That's very simple.

"When I say to (Branislav) Ivanovic: 'Don't make an early cross because (Didier) Drogba is not there,' I know what I'm saying. He'd be crossing for what? Why would you want to play like another team? Don't try to be clever because you'll become stupid."
