Chelsea continues dropping points after having lost their 2nd match out of their 4 opening games of the season.
This is not the way that Jose Mourinho was expecting to start this season as he has the task of defending his Premier League title but with such a mediocre way to kick off the 2015-16 season it seems unlikely that Chelsea will be able to defend their league title unless Mourinho and his team are able to bounce back from this recent slump.
Jose Mourinho seems to be playing the blame game and after having pointed his fingers on everyone, the Portuguese doesn’t know what to do now.
The Portuguese took charge of his 100th Premier League game on August 29 when Chelsea faced off with Crystal Palace and lost 1-2. A few days before this match had even kicked on, Mourinho said that he would only celebrate his 100th match in the top tier England league if his team wins but they lost, it was a huge blow not only for Mourinho but for his team as-well as they continue to struggle.
Ever since the defeats started arriving, Mourinho’s blame followed them as well. The manager of Chelsea began blaming his own player for a lack of spirit and according to him this was why they lost their opening match of the season which was against Manchester City and even if it wasn’t a lack of spirit this defeat had to do with the players in it’s entirety.
Now that they lost against Crystal Palace, Mourinho started to blame himself as he said: “I blame myself not to change one of them, because I kept him in the game for 90 minutes. The reality is that we had a bad start,” he acknowledged. “Four points in four matches is a very bad start.”
This blame game of Mourinho is not helping the team in bouncing back from the slump and positive results will have to start arriving as there already are rumors popping up involving a new manager that can take the place of the Portuguese coach in Stamford Bridge.
