Mourinho praises 'difficult' Shrews

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho praises "difficult opponents" Shrewsbury Town after the Blues' 2-1 Capital One Cup win at Greenhous Meadow.

Didier Drogba swept in a half-volley to put Chelsea in front before Andy Mangan scored a deserved equaliser for the League Two Shrews, but Jermaine Grandison's late own goal sent Chelsea through to the League Cup quarter-finals.

Shrewsbury boss Micky Mellon says he "could not be prouder" of his side's performance and believes his players showed they are "well better than the level they are playing at".
