Chelsea 2 Fulham 0: We’re not playing especially well – Mourinho
Chelsea 2 Fulham 0: Jose Mourinho admits the Blues aren't playing particularly well after a narrow win at Stamford Bridge
Jose Mourinho admitted Chelsea aren’t playing “particularly well” after the Blues were unconvincing winners against Fulham at Stamford Bridge.
Oscar handed the Blues a second-half lead with a close-range finish before John Obi Mikel netted in the 83rd minute to seal three points for the home side in the west London derby.
As a result, Mourinho’s men ended a three-game losing run after making their worst start to a Premier League in over a decade, but the Chelsea boss wasn’t overly impressed with the display.
“The result was better than the result against Everton, but I think we played much better against Everton than we did today,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.
“After a bad start that everybody kept telling me is the worst start for about a decade, today I go to bed and look at the table nobody is in front of us.
“I’m in football for a long time and when results are not good I’m not expecting people to speak well about our team.
“I’m building a different team, the most difficult thing is first to change the philosophy. That takes a little bit of time. We are not playing especially well, the results are not especially good, but the beauty of the Premier League is that everybody loses points so no dramas.
“The reality is we are there, we have 10 points. I have to say I never worked so hard as I’m doing this season with this group of players.”
