Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that he is starting to feel the strain of his side's inconsistent form - as they prepare for a crucial clash against the Premier League leaders Arsenal.
Generally, Chelsea have been in poor form but the 50-year-old manager is particularly frustrated by the misfiring form of the strikers and he has been unable to find a solution to that problem.
The strikers which include Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba have scored just five league goals between them this term.
And with the extraordinary form of the Gunners this season, Mourinho feels pressured as this game tends to be decisive one which determines who tops the Premier League.
In the circumstances, Mourinho could do with his strikers finally finding their shooting boots and he said: "Missing goals. It's always the same words. It's unbelievable.
"Even on the bench, I feel every time we miss a chance and the score is 0-0, 1-0, 2-1, 1-1, I feel the pressure.
"I feel that missing the chances, maybe later you are punished. We have this problem.
"In every match we lost in England, in the Premier League and in the cup at Sunderland, we were the best team by far.
"We create, we enjoy the ball, we were always very comfortable on the pitch, we had unbelievable chances to score to kill the game. We don't do it."
However, Arsenal will be without the English midfielder Jack Wilshere on Monday, following his two-game suspension for making an offensive gesture at Manchester City fans in last weekend's 6-3 thrashing.
There is just two points between the two London clubs and a win would definitely make the difference for either side.
