Mourinho Slams Chelsea Defence

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has labeled his side's defending as ridiculous after their  3-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League.
 
Goals from Ezequiel Lavezzi, Javier Pastore and a David Luiz own goal condemned the Blues to a first leg defeat in Paris and the Blues boss was not happy with the way his charges defended throughout the game.
 
"I say ridiculous. You say sloppy, I say ridiculous," said Mourinho
 
"After the cross comes (for the first goal), we assist the striker and there's no one going for the ball in the crucial position. In the second, it's one of my players on the goal and that's unlucky.
 
"But the way the team were positioned defensively was not correct. And finally, the third one is even more sloppy. Ridiculous."
 
However, the Portuguese boss has not ruled his side out just yet, after Eden Hazard secured an away goal, but admits it will be tough.
 
"It's a difficult job. It's not impossible. Nothing is impossible but it's difficult. They are the kind of team - with the players they have - out of nothing they can score goals. So it will not be an easy job," he said.
 
"We are not a team full of talent to score lots of goals, especially at this level - but you never know."
