Goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Juan Mata over a seven-minute period decimated the champions.

Mourinho was criticised during his spells at Chelsea for a supposedly negative style even though their first title-winning side included a swaggering attack of Arjen Robben, Damien Duff, Joel Cole, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.

Mourinho say other teams have started using his blueprint in winning games with their teams.

The Portuguese acknowledged that though his teams have traditionally been "ruthless, phenomenal defensively and very good on the counter-attack" he has always won titles with that style.
