Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says he is unhappy with the club’s current struggle but hopes to grab good points on Wednesday over Porto.
The blues woes were deepened following a 1-0 lost to lowly Bournemouth on Saturday, which will go into the record books as one of the biggest upsets in Premier League history.
The Premier League Champions seem relived going into the game after ridding on the back of seven points out of possible nine in all competitions before Bournemouth muddy up Chelsea’s clean waters with Glenn Murray late goal.
With 15 points from 15 matches, Chelsea are 14th in the league table, 14 points off third-placed Man City and boss Mourinho is counting on a win over Porto in the Champions League to boost the morale of his team to turn things around before the end of the year.
“I only know one way to fix it, which is to work and give my maximum every day and every match.” said the Portuguese coach.
“If a player is not capable of giving maximum every day and every match, then the collective pays, but I feel strong as ever.” he added.
On the other hand, the Cherries must consider themselves really lucky to have grabbed all three points on Saturday night after Chelsea were denied a penalty before Murray headed goal came from an offside position.
“I cannot laugh because I am not happy, I cannot cry because it’s not my profile.”
“I can just work and that is what I am going to do to try to get a result on Wednesday (at home to Porto) to get through to the next round of the Champions League.”
Chelsea will play home to Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday to seek for at least a point or better to progress to the next round of the competition.
Next week will see Chelsea travel away to take on league leaders Leicester City on Monday night fixture; a tough ask considering the foxes as the most consistent team in England this season.
