The Chelsea manager saw his team lose 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium, but he is keen to get back on track against Everton this weekend.
The Chelsea manager felt that his side showed the effects of a busy schedule with a tired performance at the Etihad Stadium, and City's extra preparation time — with its midweek league clash postponed because of bad weather — paid dividends as it won 2-0.
The defeat was Chelsea's seventh of the season in all competitions but, rather than letting the result affect his spirits, Mourinho is focussed on getting a positive result in the upcoming Premier League match with Everton on Saturday.
"I don't like to lose but when I lose, instead of big crying I want the next match to come," he told the club's official website. "I want to play, I want to try to have again the taste of the victory. I am never down with a defeat and I want to start working towards the next match, and hopefully I can pass to (the players) this kind of spirit, this kind of message."
Chelsea has lost consecutive games on just one occasion this season, when a 1-0 loss at Everton was followed by a 2-1 home defeat against Basel in the Champions League.
