Schurrle breaks the Jose silence.
Chelsea looked tired in the first half before a masterclass in finishing from Schurrle settled the game - with only a later Johnny Heitinga goal acting as consolation for Fulham in the 3-1 defeat.
After the game Chelsea boss Mourinho, well-known as a man who is happy to speak his mind, admitted it was his silence at half-time which spoke volumes to his players.
"I didn't say a word at half-time," he said.
"The first half was really bad for us. I don't know if they controlled us, or if we didn't start. It was a really bad first half.
"It was silent at half-time. Normally I give them two or three minutes to clean or change boots or shirts. After that they know I'll start talking.
"They were there ready for me but I was not ready for them. I decided not to speak because, if I started to speak about the first half, I'd need more than the 10 minutes.
"Without words, they understand - so they knew the first half was really poor and they transformed it."
