Mourinho all smiles after Champions League win

CHELSEA boss Jose Mourinho said he was glad to have that winning feeling back after his side won its first Champions League group stage fixture 4-0 against Maccabi Tel Aviv.

The Blues had won just once in five English Premier League starts before that game, and even had the luxury of a penalty miss from Eden Hazard before goals from Willian, Oscar, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas sealed the victory.

"I forgot the feeling. For so long we don't win a game ... so good, a good feeling," Mourinho (pictured) said.

"I am a fantastic manager when I win matches and I am a fantastic manager when I lose matches."

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was not so happy as his team went down 2-1 to Dynamo Zagreb and had Olivier Giroud sent off.

Defending champion Barcelona drew 1-1 with Roma after Alessandro Florenzi scored from just inside the Barca half following Luis Suarez' opener.
