Jose Mourinho has revealed his delight at how his Chelsea team have progressed so far this season.

The west London club are flying high at the top of the table after a 100 per cent start to the new campaign following last term’s third-place finish.

The second season normally is a good season for a manager

The Blues have brought in a number of new players over the summer, including striker Diego Costa and midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

And the Portuguese coach feels that his team are now heading in the right direction in terms of a more attacking philosophy after ending the 2013-14 campaign without a trophy.

“It’s a direction we tried to establish since the beginning of last season, but our squad now is different,” Mourinho told Eurosport-Yahoo. “We have different qualities now in our players.

“The second season normally is a good season for a manager because you come from one season of work and you can choose a better direction you want to go and we feel comfortable and we feel happy the way we are doing things.”

Mourinho added: “Are we going to lose matches? Obviously, yes, but in this moment we are getting results and we are enjoying our style of play.”
