Jose Mourinho: Has he lost his dominance?

Jose Mourinho is one of the most sought after managers in the modern game.

The self proclaimed 'Special One' has won titles in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain and he has now returned to restore the glory days of title victories to his beloved Chelsea.

But will the Special One be able to handle the pressures of the most competitive Premier League in years? It seems crazy to even suggest but I will now reel back the years of Mourinho victories to show that more often then not Jose was in charge of the dominant force in the domestic league and was not sufficiently challenged on the home front at least. 

Mourinho returned to Chelsea this summer with the view to bringing the Premier League back to Stamford Bridge for the first  time since 2010.

However, the Special One has so far failed to have the same impact as he had when he first walked through the doors of the Bridge in 2004. Notably the back bone of the team Frank Lampard, John Terry and Ashley Cole are approaching the twilight of their careers and can no longer perform consistently to the level they used to.

Mourinho's men have suffered two defeats to Basel in the Champions League, as-well as failing to beat an out of form Manchester United in August, losing to Newcastle and lucky to draw 2-2 with Wet Brom at home. This is a stark contrast to the Mourinho machine that dominated in his first Blues tenure.

The Special One arrived at Chelsea in 2004 following a successful spell at Porto where he won the Uefa Cup and Champions League as-well as a couple of domestic titles. Chelsea were seemingly invincible as they romped to back to back Premier league titles in 04/05 and 05/06. 

But now, perhaps, Mourinho isn't at the top anymore.
