Jose Mourinho disappointed with incomplete Chelsea performance
Chelsea manager felt the Blues deserved three points after a 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers
Jose Mourinho was unhappy with Chelsea’s incomplete performance after they limped to a 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers at Stamford Bridge.
Brazil international Oscar scored his second goal in three Premier League games to give the Blues a 1-0 lead in the 32nd minute.
We deserve it because we were the only team that tried to win and had lots of chances
However, in-form QPR striker Charlie Austin levelled in the second half to ensure a nervy finish to the west London side.
But Chelsea edged to the win thanks to Eden Hazard’s 75th-minute penalty after the Belgian was fouled by Eduardo Vargas.
“Completely deserved victory, but not a good performance. We didn’t play well consistently,” Mourinho told Sky Sports News.
“We had good periods and good reaction to negative periods, especially after their goal. We didn’t play a very complete game like we are normally doing in the Premier League.
“We deserve it because we were the only team that tried to win and had lots of chances. Rob Green had a fantastic performance.
“They had a very good defensive performance. We should, we can, we have to play better.”
Although the Chelsea manager claimed only one team wanted three points in the derby, Mourinho could understand the logic behind Harry Redknapp’s tactics.
“That is normal. I am not critical of that. They changed their system,” Mourinho added.
“Harry is very experienced and tried to close every way to the goal. If we play better, we win the game with difference numbers.”
