Mourinho ‘Trying To Understand’ Chelsea’s Poor Form

After Chelsea’s match against Newcastle at the weekend, in which the team barely got a draw, manager Jose Mourinho rated his team’s performance to start the match a “minus-one out of ten,” and wasn’t sure how a team could play so poorly and then turn things around so quickly.

“I think in the first half from zero to 10: minus-one. That bad,” he said, adding, “In every aspect of the game, we were bad. There were too many poor individual performances.

“As a consequence of that, it is impossible for a team to be a good competitive team.

“After 2-0, I moved the team and they responded very well to get a point, which is not what you want, but it’s not bad.

“I have to try to understand why one team can play so badly in the first half and so well in another one.”
