Mourinho: We Don't Deserve This Result

Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, insists his side did not deserve to lose 3-1 to Everton, saying that the scoreline was too heavy for his players.

The Blues lost their second successive league encounter, which makes it their worst start to a season in the top division since 1986.

However, Mourinho feels his players just need a bit of confidence, as everything is going against them at the moment.

"We don't deserve this result. It is too heavy for the way the players started the game, finished the game and played during the game," Mourinho told SkySports News.

"The biggest concern is that everything goes against us. We know we are making mistakes but for every mistake we are punished immediately.

"We need to win a couple of consecutive matches. We need the players to smile again. We need the strikers to score goals. We need the central defenders not to make mistakes and be punished for that.

"We need confidence. I think confidence is fundamental. In this moment everything goes against us and the players feel it. They don't accept it. They fight, they play, they try, but the reality at the moment is difficult for them. It is not easy to play football with confidence level low."

Mourinho was then asked if they could still challenge for the league title, he replied: "I don't know. Chelsea can win the next match against Arsenal for sure, [but] to win the title, I don't know."
