Mourinho's smart Chelsea outwit Pellegrini's stunned City
(REUTERS) - Jose Mourinho proved why he is one of the most revered coaches in the world as he masterminded a 1-0 win that ended Manchester City's 100 per cent home Premier League record this season.
Chelsea have now picked up 10 points from a possible 12 against the other top four teams this term as they joined the hosts on 53 points, two behind leaders Arsenal.
"We played fantastic. Against a fantastic club, to play the way we did I think is amazing for the boys," Mourinho told Sky Sports after his team had also hit the woodwork three times.
"In the process of building the team, to prepare the team to be favourites, to be one of the favourites next season, I think it is an important step."
