The Portuguese saw his team lose 2-0 defeat at the Etihad Stadium, but he is keen to get back on track against Everton this weekend
The Portuguese 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 their midweek league clash postponed due to bad weather - paid dividends as they ran out 2-0 winners.
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 them (the players) this kind of spirit, this kind of message."
Chelsea have lost consecutive games on just one previous occasion this season, when a 1-0 loss at Everton was followed up by a 2-1 home defeat against Basel in the Champions League.
