With his side a goal to the good on a wet afternoon at Wembley Stadium, the Chelsea boss decided to have a bit of fun with a member of the TV crew by giving him a cheeky soaking with a water bottle.

Long before the end, gaps were appearing in the white half of Wembley. They had seen this show before. So had we all. The last time he was here Jose Mourinho served notice by winning the League Cup. The Premier League can consider itself told.
Ominously, the goal that made Chelsea comfortable was scored by Diego Costa. Out of sorts since his three-match ban, this was a return to form. He was niggly, irritating, but a striker that any manager in the league would love to have. His goal needed assistance from a deflection off Kyle Walker, but it belonged to him, and no-one else. Striker’s gamble and that is what Costa did with his run – when the ball arrived, from lovely build-up work between Willian and Cesc Fabregas, he made Walker commit and stick a fateful foot out. Chelsea were 2-0 up after 56 minutes and, in this mood, that was the game over.
Mourinho was already in a playful mood, squirting water at a nearby television camera, as if the second-half needed to get wetter. After the agitation that followed the draw at Burnley, here was a man very relaxed and with good reason. Chelsea’s had weathered Tottenham’s first-half storm and then rained on them from a great height. Yes, there was Tottenham pressure, but so there should be – they were chasing the game. Chelsea handled it all with assuredness. Coupled with the result at Anfield, it will have been the happiest this moody bunch have felt in quite some time.
