Mourinho eager for Chelsea to bounce back from Cup defeat

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says the next game can't come quick enough after their FA Cup defeat to Manchester City.

Mourinho admits the fifth-round defeat was one of Chelsea's worst performances since he returned as manager in the summer but is not concerned.

"I don't like to lose," he said. "When I lose, instead of crying, I want the next match to come. I want to play, I want to try to have again the taste of victory.

"I'm never down with a defeat. I want to start working again for the next match and, hopefully, I can pass to them this kind of spirit, this kind of message. I think we also played very poor against Basle this season but obviously City are incomparable with Basle. They were stronger than us, so not a big story."
