London : Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he is extremely concerned about his team’s form following his side’s 2-2 draw against Newcastle in their Premier League clash at St James’ Park.
Mourinho criticized his players, saying that they were so bad during the match that he wanted to make six substitutions, the Mirror reported. The 52-year-old, however, said that the reason he didn’t make substitution was because he was confused whom to choose. Mourinho admitted that he should have made much more changes during the match, adding that the three substitutions, which he made, had improved the game.
Earlier, the defending champions were trailing 0-2 before they produced a spirited fightback in the second half, thanks to the Brazilian duo of Ramires and Willian, to narrowly avoid defeat at Newcastle. Chelsea are 15th in the league table with eight points while Newcastle are languishing down at 19th after seven games. Chelsea will next lock horns with Southampton on October 3 at Stamford Bridge.
