Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is understandably disappointed with yesterday’s defeat against Bournemouth. His frustration is so high that he began to question the goalscoring ability of Chelsea players.
“I have to be honest and say I was not expecting this result,”
”The team was in a good moment, working well, playing well. Of course not scoring enough goals.”
“We didn’t score against Stoke, we didn’t against Tottenham. We scored one goal to win the game against Norwich.”
“It’s difficult for us to score goals.”
“Scoring goals is a lot about individuals. The creation is collective, but the finishing is something very individual and at this moment we’re not having that.”
“We lost the game exactly at the moment where we were the strongest team, in our strongest period,”
“We were really unlucky, especially to concede a goal when we don’t deserve.
“In the second half we did more than enough to score and to win.”
He has also remembered that on Wednesday, Chelsea will face FC Porto and match result will decide who will fall and who will go further in the Champions League:
”It’s a knockout game,”
”It’s a group phase where normally you still play for points.”
”But the reality is that it’s a knockout. Chelsea or Porto, one will be out. For sure, a big game.”
