Mourinho buoyed by Chelsea's Champions League response

Chelsea continued their return to form in the Champions League with a comfortable 3-0 win over Schalke on Wednesday night.

A pair of goals either side of half-time from Samuel Eto'o and a late finish from Demba Ba gave the Blues their third win in a row in Europe's premier club competition this season which thrilled Mourinho following their opening fixture loss to FC Basel in September.

"We won in quite a comfortable way and it's good for us," Mourinho said.

"After the Basel defeat we put ourselves in a difficult situation and it's fantastic that after the fourth fixture we have qualified, almost. Not yet."

Chelsea now sits three points clear of Schalke on top of Group E with fixtures against third-placed Basel in Switzerland on November 26 and bottom of the group Steaua Bucharest in December to come.
