Mourinho happy with Anfield draw
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was happy with a point in the Champions League draw at Liverpool - but insisted Rafael Benitez's side will also be pleased.

He said after the 0-0 stalemate: "I'm not 100% satisfied but it's a point, so I'm not crazy with happiness but I'm not very sad. A point away is positive.

"Normally the team at home is not happy with a point but I think they are.

"We tried to play for more - but we didn't lose and we are in a good situation in the group."

Mourinho added: "In the last 15 minutes we tried to win the game and I think they played the same - they changed nothing.

"It was a good game because it was competitive. It was very close, very tough. In midfield there was not a lot of space. There was a lot of power in both teams.

"We were trying to win by putting Hernan Crespo on with Didier Drogba and putting on Shaun Wright-Phillips.

"In the last three or four minutes when there was a lot of long balls into the box I didn't want to lose, so I put Robert Huth on because he can dominate and play the basketball game - so we go home with a point."
