Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wary of West Ham threat
Jose Mourinho warns his Chelsea side not to underestimate the threat posed by West Ham ahead of Wednesday's clash
Jose Mourinho has warned his Chelsea side not to underestimate the threat posed by West Ham United ahead of Wednesday’s clash at Stamford Bridge.
Sam Allardyce’s side are currently 18th in the Premier League table after a run of six defeats in their last nine top-flight outings.
West Ham are in trouble in the table but I look at them and I feel a difficult match
But the Chelsea boss is fully expecting a “difficult” clash against the east London outfit, who have brought in Marco Borriello, Jaanai Gordon, Roger Johnson and Antonio Nocerino this month.
“West Ham are in trouble in the table but I look at them and I feel a difficult match,” said Mourinho.
“They have new players, and they have had time to work and rest from the difficult Christmas period they had, especially because they had so many injured players.”
Mourinho continued: “We are playing well. The last game against Stoke was a 1-0 but a good 1-0.
“There was quality individually and collectively, and we defended and pressed well also. You never know what is going to happen in the next match but the results are arriving as a consequence of the team playing very good football.”
