Jose Mourinho: Luis Suarez deserved booking after 'diving' to try win penalty

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho described his players as 'amazing' over the festive period, following the team's 2-1 win over Liverpool.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho felt Luis Suarez deserved to be booked for simulation after the Liverpool striker appealed in vain for a penalty during the Reds' 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

At the centre of most of what was good about Chelsea was Hazard and team-mate David Luiz hailed the Belgian for his display. "Of course it is not very good to (concede) a goal in the first minutes but there was a really strong mentality in the team, we gave everything on the pitch and it was magic tonight," Luiz said on Sky Sports 1. "Eden had a great game tonight and I'm happy we have players like Eden in the team because then I see amazing football." The win keeps Chelsea in third, just two points from leaders Arsenal. "We will keep fighting for the title," Luiz added.
