Mourinho pleased with players form

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is pleased with his sides form in pre-season after Chelsea's 2-0 victory over his former side Inter Milan. 

Chelsea scored twice in the opening half an hour through Oscar and Hazard but played against ten men for the last half an hour after Hugo Campagnaro was sent-off for a late lunge on John Terry. 

Mourinho said he would have preferred to have played 90 minutes against 11 men and would rather that Inter could have replaced their red carded player. 

"The referee did well, the rules are the rules, I would prefer the referee to allow them to bring another player out and we play 11 v 11, that would be better but that is not football and not the rules," he said on Sky Sports News. 

"There were no injuries, the pitch was not the best, so that is good for both sides.

"I think it is good experience for us, good for them - they play a tactical system that is not easy to play against - three at the back and the full-backs go forward a lot so even tactically it was good for us.

"I can give the players ideas about what I want to do tactically in training, so it was good to see what they were trying to do, like Eden Hazard doing defensive work he does not normally do so I am happy with how the players are working.
Captain John Terry added: "It was a good win, we have had a couple of days training and is good to play 90 minutes. It is good to flush your legs but good for new players to come in on the US tour.

"The fitness we are getting there, and training is getting there."
