With the Premier League championship all but confirmed, Mourinho was focused on his side’s defending in the face of Arsenal’s dangerous attack. “I think my team gave a lesson of how to defend well. If somebody wants to teach young kids how to be a central defender, show them a tape of John Terry today.”
Mourinho refused to talk about the contentious refereeing decisions, but did shoot a backhanded compliment towards the crew. “I don’t want to speak about it. I prefer to forget the penalties and to focus on the referee [Michael] Oliver and his assistant’s performance, which was very good…if you forget the penalties. It’s like a player who has an amazing game and makes a mistake.”
