Life is pretty sweet for Jose Mourinho right now. His Chelsea side have been comfortably the best in the Premier League this season and a five point gap at the top of the league doesn't flatter the blues. Yesterday they navigated a tricky away tie at Crystal Palace, surviving a red card to full back César Azpilicueta to win 2-1.
The corresponding fixture last season saw Chelsea beaten by a single goal and after that game, Mourinho wrote on a notepad that the reason for their defeat was a lack of balls.
He's been waiting a while to do this.
