London - Jose Mourinho expects Chelsea to make amends for their first defeat of the season when the Premier League leaders host Hull on Saturday.
Mourinho's side saw their 23-match unbeaten run in all competitions come to a surprise end with a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle last weekend.
The loss allowed second placed Manchester City to close within three points of the Blues.
But Chelsea quickly got back to winning ways against Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League in midweek and Mourinho is confident his players will maintain their recovery by seeing off struggling Hull at Stamford Bridge.
"The response is to play well and to try to win every game. It's what we are doing since the beginning of the season," Mourinho said.
"Results are results, but what can we do more than we are doing?
"Playing very, very well. Not one single bad performance, good spirit, good individual performances.
"You cannot be better than first in the Premier League, top of the league in the group phase and quarter-final of League Cup."
