Mourinho is happy with their victories in the Champions League
We must remember that Europe's premier club competition eluded Mourinho in his first two seasons at Stamford Bridge, but he moved to remedy this by bringing in proven quality in the guise of Michael Ballack and Andrei Shevchenko.
And the Bluies fired out a warning to the rest of Europe on Tuesday, when twice fighting back from a goal down to draw 2-2 at Barcelona.
In fact, Mourinho's team is well placed to qualify for the knockout stages and although refusing to get too carried away, Mourinho feels Chelsea can go all the way this season.
Mourinho claims: "I cannot predict the future because I can find Spanish teams, English teams, German teams, Italian teams who can also win the tournament. However, the reality is that we're playing Champions League much better than last season.
"In our two wins at home to Werder Bremen and Barcelona we did very well. The triumph in Levski Sofia was easy but we did it. And this was our best performance of our four games in the Champions League."
