Cape Town - Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was happy to leave the Etihad with a point despite being a man up and a goal to the good during his side's clash with Manchester City.

Report: Manchester City v Chelsea

After seeing Frank Lampard score against him to earn 10-man Manchester City a 1-1 draw, Jose Mourinho insisted he was happy with the result and maintains his focus on the 38 game race to the English Premiership title.  

"It was one point won because we arrived here as leaders with two points more than the second, and we leave with a three points lead," said Mourinho on the club's website.  

"I look to the table and we are leaders.

"We came here to a super difficult stadium and a super difficult opponent, and we leave in better conditions than we arrived.

"It was a very, very good performance."

Chelsea next face Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, September 27 at 16:00.
