Mourinho 'smelt defeat'

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho revealed he 'smelt defeat' before making game-changing substitutions which saw his side go on to beat Norwich 3-1 in their Barclays Premier League clash at Carrow Road.

During the game I am not nervous. I have feelings. I smell things, and when that easy goal (from Ba) was missed, I had a smell that they would score a goal.

That is why I had Eden warming up at 1-0 because I smelled that.

We could have won or lost it at 1-1 because we, at that moment, we didn't want a point.

If they had scored a second goal, we would probably lose, but we are trying to be top.

After a point at Spurs, a point here would have been a bad result for us, so we tried to win it.
