Football – Mourinho – Chelsa did not deserve a red cad

Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has insisted his side did not deserve to lose, after they were beaten 1-0 by Bournemouth on Saturday.

It was the fourth time the Premier League defending champions lost at Stamford Bridge this season and their eighth of the season.

The Portuguese now feels that the Blues’ realistic target is to finish in the top six.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, a downbeat Mourinho said: “We didn’t deserve to lose. Our opponent – in the period that they thought only of defence – managed to get a goal and there was a clear mistake from the referee.

“I think it is a clear handball and penalty with the score at 0-0. In the first half we were not aggressive enough, in the second half we arrived in dangerous positions a lot of time with a lot of crosses from the right hand side from Ivanovic.

“They played in a way that some call intelligent, some say is not fair play. They were taking time, calling for the medical department and drinking water like it is basketball time out.”

Mourinho added: “I am concerned of course. There is no chance that Chelsea will be fighting relegation. That is not the problem. It is that our objective is to finish top four. Before this game it was realistic to think that our quality would take us out of this position, but maybe now we have to think about top six.

“If our players are not able to give the maximum every day that is a problem. If you analysis match after match there are a few layers where it is difficult to be consistent. You think there is evolution, but maybe it is just one moment in which they are good.”
