Jose Mourinho said nothing to Chelsea stars after Liverpool defeat

Jose Mourinho may have had "nothing to say" to the press following Chelsea's 3-1 reverse to Liverpool on Saturday, but many would have expected him to be more vocal in the home dressing room.

Chelsea started the game brightly, taking an early lead through Ramires and held onto it until added time in the first-half. Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho would start what would go on to be a glorious comeback for Jurgen Klopp's men.

But while Liverpool's travelling fans were in triumphant mood, Chelsea's flopping international stars were attempting to come to terms with their sixth defeat of the Premier League season.

Mourinho, who has arguably been in a dark mood since the opening day of the season – a 2-2 draw against Swansea City – may have attempted to give his players a rousing speech or at the very least a dressing down. Instead, as Ramires has revealed, he said absolutely nothing.

But the Brazilian explained that Mourinho did not give a post-match team talk because the bulk of the debrief would be done at the Blues' Cobham training centre. Oh, to be a fly on the wall in that meeting room.

He told Chelsea's officials website: "It is difficult because when we lose a game, everyone is sad in the dressing room.

"The manager didn’t say anything because it was not the time but on Sunday we have a conversation and he will show to us what we did in the game."

And Mourinho was in a familiar mood with BT Sport interviewer Des Kelly after the full-time whistle. He flat-out refused to answer any of his questions with a meaningful answer.

It was, at least, an improvement on his media performance in Chelsea's last Premier League game – a 2-1 defeat to West Ham – when he refused to fulfil any of his post-match duties at all.
