Mourinho moans at lack of goals

Mourinho moans at lack of goals

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his team are “paying” for a lack of a cutting edge, following his team’s 1-1 draw away at Galatasaray last evening.

Speaking after his team left the Turkish champions with a 1-1 draw, Jose Mourinho said “Some other teams have three chances and score three goals. We have five and score one,”

“That’s not a critique of the strikers but it’s the profile of the team we have.”

“We create but when we arrive in the final third of the pitch, the correct pass and right movement is something we don’t have,”

“We are paying for that. In the Premier League we are losing points and in the Champions League we could have had a different result.

Although Chelsea have now drawn 3 of their last 6 games in all competitions, Mourinho is not too un-happy with the score draw in Turkey. He said “In the first half it was an opportunity missed, in the second half it was a fair result. In the first half we were the best team, we had three or four chances where we should have been more effective and scored,”

With Chelsea’s incredible home record under Mourinho then most people would expect them to reach the las 8 of the UEFA Champions League but Galatasaray showed that they are no push-overs and Chelsea will need to improve if they are to progress.
