Another big away match featuring Jose Mourinho, another big away match won by Jose Mourinho. Yesterday, Chelsea were for once the underdogs against favourites Manchester City who had bowled away every single one of their away opponents (save for Liverpool and Crystal Palace) with their awesome attacking prowess.
However, needing a victory to keep pace with Man City, Chelsea and Mourinho stood defiant and played a game based on defensive solidarity and then breaking on the counter to secure the victory via Branislav Ivanovic's left-footed strike.
It was a vintage Jose Mourinho away performance that was not only important with the league table at hand, but because it deals psychological damage to Man City.
With this in mind, where does this latest victory rank in Mourinho's five greatest away victories?
The game was dubbed Champions of Europe vs Champions of England. Some considered Liverpool to be fortuitous of that title, but they had made massive strides that season, totaling the record amount of points a team in third has made in Premier League history: 82 - 1 behind Man Utd in second.
The ease by which Chelsea won this match was an early declaration they were in a league of their own. They finished the season with 91 points - the second highest total amassed in the Premier League.
Chelsea looked good for their one-nil lead and hit the post on three occasions. They completed dominated the game and rubbished thoughts Man City were unbeatable at home.
The gauntlet has been thrown as far as the title is concerned.
As it turns out, Chelsea had twice fought back from losing positions to draw the game and maintain their lead at the top. Chelsea never relinquished top spot again that season and as it were, a changing of the guard occurred, a change that has very seldom been challenged since.
This Champions League quarter final tie went down to the very last minute and as it stood the tie was going to extra time until a Michael Essien strike took Chelsea through to the semi-finals, where they lost to Liverpool on penalties.
For me this is to date Mourinho's greatest away victory. Despite the fact they lost the tie, this gets the nod for the fact Inter did not lose the most one sided match in football history by more than one goal.
From beginning to end Inter faced a relentless wave of Barcelona attacks. Before the 1st half had even ended, you were wondering how much Barcelona were going to win by.
However, as the minutes trickled by, Barcelona began to look more flustered as man mountains Lucio and Walter Samuel repelled anything that came their way.
Miraculously, it took Barcelona - the greatest team the world has ever seen - 84 minutes to get their first goal via Gerard Pique.
By this point Inter were flapping at everything a were lucky to avoid a last minute penalty as defenders looked to tear the shirt of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and as Bojan had a perfectly legitimate goal disallowed.
Nonetheless, in football you make your luck and Inter certainly made theirs. Despite winning the first leg 3-1, that was seen as an aberration, something Barcelona would correct at the Nou Camp. Immediately the final whistle blew, the Barcelona groundsmen sprinkled the pitch with water as if they wanted to exorcise a demon. That did not stop Jose Mourinho, Samuel Eto'o and others jubilating as they went through to the final, where they played and beat Bayern Munich to lift the Champions League.
