Unsurprisingly, our resident Chelsea supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern are incredibly frustrated right now having seen their side lose yet another game this season away to FC Porto in the Champions League last night.
On Jose Mourinho’s homecoming to the club where he first made his name, it was the Portuguese side who came out the victors following two well taken goals from both Andre Andre and Maicon.
With Chelsea having levelled up in fantastic fashion from Willian literally a second before the half-time whistle, the Blues were very convincing in spells with Mourinho claiming that the performance was much better but due to individual defensive mistakes, Blues supporters got that sinking feeling yet again come the full-time whistle.
Prior to the game kicking off, Mourinho claimed there were no longer any “untouchables” in his team and this has only really been the first time this season that the manager has publicly outed his underperforming squad with the Blues boss usually being one to protect his players no matter what.
But with Eden Hazard dropped from the starting line-up last night, you can tell that Mourinho is on his last tether regarding his squad’s dramatic fall from grace with those players now needing to stand up and be counted.
As we know from his two spells in English management so far, Mourinho has always succeeded when both he and the players trust each other as a tight-knit compact unit but with the likes of Branislav Ivanovic, Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and others not fully knowing if their place is safe right now, you can tell the squad is nervous and therefore making mistakes.
We’re not going to pretend it’s been an easy watch for Blues supporters because it hasn’t to far but we’re at least trying to cheer our Chelsea contingent up by devising a list of their five best strikes so far this 2015/16 campaign.
