Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was delighted with his "kids" after their stalemate at Manchester United.

Mourinho rates the 0-0 draw a "fair result".

"I played here with four kids under 22 in attack, for some of them the first time at Old Trafford. They played against the champions, against Ferdinand, against Vidic, against Evra. My kids behaved very well. They couldn't produce enough to win the game, we didn't have as many situations as we expected to, we missed some easy passes but the boys were fantastic. The kids were fantastic. The whole generation was brilliant. It's a very good quality for my team.

"My team needs this because it is a team with a lot of talent but at the same time they need to know how to play in difficult circumstances. They know how to think tactically, how to think in a result if the result you want is not possible. For me it was fantastic. Andre Schurrle playing against Evra, Oscar playing in different positions. For me it was fantastic."
