That big, honest guy – I don’t believe he dived.“If Willian wants to dive he dives in the box, not on the halfway line.”Chelsea were not at their fluent best but goals from Eden Hazard and Costa were enough to see off Hull, who had Tom Huddlestone sent off in the second half for scything down Filipe Luis.“We didn’t play especially well but we played well enough for everybody connected with Chelsea to be calm because the game was always under control,” Mourinho said.“This season we have had many special performances. Today there were just moments of good football and moments of creativity – just moments, not for the 90 minutes.“As managers we always want more, but the reality is that what is in front of the players is hard.“We have been playing well since August.
