  • Slaviša Jokanović takes positives despite hosts' exit from Europe

Slaviša Jokanović, Maccabi coach
This was a difficult match for us. We played with ten men for most of the game. Did you watch our first match in this Champions League campaign? We have made a lot of progress in my opinion. But Chelsea are still a much better team.

The Champions League was a huge experience for me and I expect us to play better next year. Maccabi have not been here for 11 years and we lack that experience but we can be proud of our players who showed character.

José Mourinho, Chelsea manager
I need a calculator to figure out this group. I know that if we win the next match we will be first and if we lose we might be in the Europa League. I rather think we will win.

Maccabi deserved better than 4-0. They had good chances but [Asmir] Begović saved us at 1-0. We played well in the first half. The pitch wasn't good and we had trouble building our play. We fell asleep and we gave Maccabi a chance to get back into the match.
