"It's the fifth season I've started with Chelsea," Mourinho told reporters after the 2-0 victory. "We had Mr Abramovich in the dressing room with us for the first time in those years before the match. It was a moment wishing everyone the best, the medical department and the players not selected.
"To have Mr Abramovich coming from his holiday to be with the team meant a lot to all of us. We are together and know where we want to go. I think it's great, especially for the players, to feel the atmosphere around. We have kids who need stability and we want to give them conditions to do well.
"We need to win matches but we can try to make this progress at the same time: get results and support the boys."
