Jose Mourinho hailed Chelsea’s amazing football in the first half after the Premier League leaders were comfortable winners against West Bromwich Albion.

Spain international Diego Costa scored his 11th goal in 10 top-flight games to hand the west London side an 11th-minute lead at Stamford Bridge.

We are getting the results that we deserve and I’m pleased that we did

Jose Mourinho

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard doubled the home side’s advantage midway through the first half to put the result beyond doubt for the hosts.

And Blues manager Mourinho declared that Chelsea fully deserved maximum points, praising his side’s performance after a two-week break.

“It was comfortable but I thought in the first half we played amazingly well,” Mourinho told BBC Sport.

“In the first half we have to be 3-0, 4-0, 5-0 up. But the quality of our football was there. I don’t remember seeing many times football of that dimension.

“We made the pitch very wide, we created spaces in the central area, and the result should be better than 2-0. We are playing well.

“We are getting the results that we deserve and I’m pleased that we did. Especially after 15 days when I have no players to work with. But it’s three important points.”

Mourinho added that Costa is looking fresher after the striker was omitted from Spain’s recent squad as he continued to gain full fitness after a hamstring problem.

“It’s easy to see the difference in him now, because now he can run, he can sprint, he can challenge for every duel,” said the Chelsea manager.
