Today Jose Mourinho has sat in front of the British media to discuss current affairs at the club, Wednesday evenings disappointment and how they must move on right away.
Mourinho confirmed that on Wednesday evening after the game he visited the Paris Saint Germain dressing room to shake hands with every player and congratulate them all. He then returned to his players to talk with every player regarding the future and that all players spoke to him.
He has also confirmed that the team are collectively working on defending crosses as a result of the last three goals being conceded from headers. He remains positive and states that his team are not feeling the pressure and are ready for the Southampton game on Sunday afternoon.
Mourinho went on to say that everyone would love to be in Chelsea’s current top of the table position right now and that is the focus. He also commented on the players surrounding the referee stating that any TV pundits who have criticised what they did, seem to have forgotten their own past.
As confirmed by Mourinho Chelsea have no new injuries to be concerned about this weekend and that every player wants to play.
They’re evidently eager to bounce back and must show a huge strength in character against a decent Southampton side, who will look to control and attack Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. It is going to yet another tough test for Chelsea who must now play every game like a cup final in order to keep their healthy lead at the top.
Southampton will feel they’re facing Chelsea at a good time and will certainly fancy their chances, but it is for Mourinho to do what he does best and man manage every single player and restore that confidence in their own abilities in order to dominate and control games once again.
