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."
