Jose Mourinho hails spirit and mentality during Stoke City win
The West Londoners confirmed their place as Premier League leaders heading into Christmas on Monday night with a 2-0 victory at the Britannia Stadium.
Stoke had become something of a bogey team for Mourinho after losing this fixture last season and the 51-year-old is delighted with the way his team played.
“These victories mean more than three points. To win and get three points, the players need the right spirit and mentality. Only with a great team performance is it possible to be successful against Stoke,” the Portuguese coach was quoted by BBC Sport.
