Jose Mourinho is known as a master tactician in the footballing circles.
He is a tactically astute coach who can change the game with his reactions but right now he is in a situation where reactions won't help him.
Mourinho cannot recall his loanee Romelu Lukaku before the next transfer window plus all his strikers are misfiring at the moment.
Fernando Torres is a shadow of the striker that we saw at Liverpool, similarly Demba Ba is feeling out of place at Stamford Bridge.
The new acquisition, veteran striker Samuel Eto'o was expected to pump in goals, but he also failed to set the Premier League alight with his exploits in front of goal.
All things aren't gloomy for Chelsea strikers - one of their strikers is pumping goals for fun in Premier League.
Romelu Lukaku is playing like a top striker with supreme authority but unfortunately for Chelsea, he is playing out of his skin while on loan at Everton.
His goals are registered under the Merseyside team's name rather than the London outfit.
Everton is benefiting from the Chelsea striker when his side is deprived of goals from forwards.
At a time when Chelsea strikers are misfiring, Romelu Lukaku might have been a good weapon. But Mourinho didn't expect this when he brought Samuel Eto from Anzhi - the former Inter Milan and Barcelona striker was expected to pump in goals for the London side.
Mourinho thought that he will net the goals and it will be better to send Lukaku out to find some playing time for him. That has back fired heavily now. The trio of Eto, Torres and Ba are failing at the moment when Lukaku is a hot property.
Lukaku might return as a far better player next season, but what will Chelsea do while they wait? They cannot rely on their midfielders and defenders for goals every match. Their strikers need to fulfil their duties otherwise Jose Mourinho's return won't bring them glory.
Will Chelsea and Jose Mourinho repent on sending Romelu Lukaku on loan? Do you think he was ready for Chelsea when they shipped him out?
It looks like Chelsea's loss is going to be Everton's gain.
