Chelsea’s Manager, Jose Mourinho, brushes off the idea of a ‘third year syndrome’. So far this season, although it is early on, the usually high flying West London team have lost three of the five games they have played.
During an interview conducted following Chelsea’s loss to Everton, Mourinho said:
“I promise you I am fine. I am not happy. I am not used to losing so many times but I am adapting to the situation. You cannot expect me to say it is all smiles, laughing and jokes. When people are not getting success we work for, we are going to be frustrated. We know what we are champions of England. The fans sing that. Nobody can steal what we are or our trophies or our history, you can try but you can’t do that.”
He went on to say that he felt strange following the losses, but implied that he could deal with it:
“When you are used to winning all the time, then when you don’t it is a strange feeling. Some people deal well with it, others not as good.”
The Blues manager plans to make drastic changes to his team prior to their next game against Maccabi Tell Aviv. And claims that he will do so to allow those that have been working hard a chance to show what they are made of on the field:
“I will make a couple of changes because I have to try a different dynamic, I have to try a couple of different faces and to give chances to people who have not been playing but have been working hard.”
The plan is to axe John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic, Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa. Ruben Loftus-cheek is rumoured to be replacing Nemanja Matic in Midfield.
Chelsea fans will be sitting on the edge of their seats during the next game expecting to see the Championship team back on form. It is disappointing to see that they are seventeenth in the Premier League table. Seventeenth is much further down the table than Chelsea are used to.
Despite the shaky start, it is imperative that the Blues turn things around, especially if they are to continue achieving the same level of success that they are historically famed for.
