Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho vented his frustrations after seeing his side come back from two goals down to draw 2-2 against Newcastle.
A late first half goal from Ayoze Perez and a Georginio Wijnaldum header put Steve McClaren’s side in control. But, a thunderous strike Ramires and a late goal from Willian was enough to steal a point at St. James’ Park.
Despite remaining unbeaten in the last four games in all competitions, Mourinho could find few positives in his side’s performance:
“It is a point. That’s what we got,” the Portuguese said to Sky Sports.
“Better than to lose but I’m never happy when I don’t win matches.
“In the first half from 0-10, we were -1. Minus one. It was that bad.
“In the second half we played very well. Ramires and Willian moved the game, they brought more intensity, were much more dynamic. Newcastle could not cope with it.
“The referee stops the game too much, but we knew that. We know what he is like.
“I have to try to understand why they can play so bad in one half and so well in the other. We were bad in every aspect of the game. Poor individual performances and it was impossible to be a competitive team.
“We missed [Diego] Costa, of course.”
