Chelsea boss Mourinho has no problem with Hazard showboating

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was delighted with Eden Hazard's performance for victory over Fulham.

Hazard supplied the final pass for the first two Andre Schurrle goals and the Belgian also had Chelsea fans enthusing about a nutmeg on a defender followed by a superbly flighted rabona-style cross from behind his standing leg.

"It is a skill that not all of them can do in a match and it is a skill he could do in the second half because he was there, and the first half he was not there, like all the others," said Mourinho.

"When he is confident and playing well and with happiness like in the second half, this is the kind of skill that is fantastic, and if the defender hadn't touched the ball then Fernando Torres scores what would have been a very good goal."
