Chelsea striker Eto'o on Man Utd hat-trick: I begged Mourinho to play me
He said: "I love the big games. Before the game I spoke with Jose and I told him I wanted to play this game.
"But it's tough when we have other great strikers like Fernando and Demba. It was good to get the opportunity to play and try and help the team win.
"The first goal took a deflection. The other two were good because I hadn't had much of the ball. But it was a real collective effort and to take the three points was the most important thing."
