Football News

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has named seven of his players who have under-performed in the early stages of the Premier League season.

The Portuguese has cut a frustrated figure on the sidelines in the Blues' opening two games; a 2-2 draw at home to Swansea followed by the 3-0 drubbing by Manchester City.

And now Mourinho has spoken out about his side's form, as reported by Sky Sports.

"We have one point from two matches," said Mourinho. "I'm not happy at all.

"I'm not happy with anyone. I'm not happy with (Branislav) Ivanovic's form, (Gary) Cahill, John (Terry), Azpi (Cesar Azpilicueta), Eden (Hazard), (Cesc) Fabregas, (Nemanja) Matic.

"But, for me, the first thing is I'm not happy with my form, because I used to get better results than I'm getting. This is the start of everything."


Mourinho has also hinted at possible changes of formation for future games after John Terry was replaced at halftime at the Etihad Stadium as he was struggling to keep up with Sergio Aguero. 

He said: "When you have strikers like we have, why not play with two strikers?"

"When you have fast people like (Kurt) Zouma, (Cesar) Azpilicueta, why not play with three defenders? And now we are having time to do that because we have a week between games, so we are thinking about that."

Team news

But the Chelsea captain Terry is expected to start against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

"He normally plays," was all Mourinho had to give away in his press conference, before adding that Terry had trained as well and as professionally as ever during the week.

Chelsea have two injury doubts going into Sunday's game with Oscar and Victor Moses still nursing injuries. Thibaut Courtois will return to the starting line-up following his one match suspension.

Mourinho doesn't know if new signings Baba Rahman and Pedro will be available although both have trained this week.
