“There were good players out there who have come from all over the world. Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic ran the game in midfield today.

“I am satisfied but relieved because we should have had the game tied up earlier because we had good chances and we controlled big parts of it.

“I am satisfied with the three points because Norwich is a tough place to come to, they are a very good side and I knew that already, they will take a lot of points off teams both home and away. I am very pleased with the performance.

“I am very happy with the result because we are Chelsea, we want to win games. I want to stay in contention and I don’t want a slow start.

“We had a tough start and I have been happy with a lot of the performances but you can’t shout that too loudly if you are not winning games. I saw a really good belief in the players in the way they played today.”
