Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho admits that he is worried about the rate of away defeats his team have suffered so far this season and of course, their lackadaisical Premier League attitude in past seasons, reports Goal.com.
The Blues suffered an unbelievable away defeat last weekend when they lost 2-0 to Newcastle in their 10th Premier League match.
The result may have affected the confidence of the coach, the players and the fans as well, and Mourinho admits he is worried over all the occurrences both now and in the past before his second coming.
He said: “Of course, of course I am worried, and I read in previous years, it happened the same. They (Chelsea) were successful in cup competitions, they were not successful in the
“They finished 20 points behind, they finished 15 points behind. They qualified for the Champions League because they won the Champions League, but they finished fifth or sixth in the league.
"Last year in December, they were not in the race for the title because they were already 20 points behind.
“This season, we have played five matches away in the Premier League - I know at difficult places to play difficult matches - but we have one victory and we have two defeats. Of course it concerns me.”
Mourinho made nine changes from the side that beat Arsenal in midweek, hence, he also admitted that he got it wrong.
"I made 11 mistakes, 11 mistakes. I should have picked another 11 and not this one. I made 11 mistakes.
“It's the feeling I have. When my team plays so badly, it's the feeling I have. I'm exaggerating. Of course we had some guys with, I am not saying outstanding, but with some normal, good performances, but the feeling is that I made 11 wrong choices.”
The Chelsea in panic will face an angry Schalke team in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
