Cape Town - Jose Mourinho feels Chelsea lacked efficiency during
Tuesday's Capital One Cup semi-final clash against Liverpool, but in the
end admitted the 1-1 draw was a "fair result".
The Reds dominated in almost every area of this week's Anfield
encounter, although it was the Blues who led for the majority of the
first-leg after Eden Hazard won and converted a penalty after 18
Raheem Sterling did manage to put away one of the Merseysiders'
numerous chances just before the hour mark, while Blues goalkeeper
Thibaut Courtois pulled off a string of impressive saves to ensure they
head to Stamford Bridge with an away-goal advantage.
Mourinho, though, feels his side had plenty of chances to secure victory, but was nonetheless happy with the final result.
“We played to the top of our potential and so did Liverpool, it was a proper semi-final,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.
“I think it was a fair result. Liverpool did not deserve to win this game, but we were in control.
“The way they played with three defenders we had a lot of space
to counter-attack, but we were not very efficient in our passing.
“We had plenty of half-chances with the space we had, but with more quality we would have scored more goals.”
