Mourinho Left Confused

Following his side’s 1-0 loss to Everton, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was left bewildered by his side’s inconsistent showing and their inability to find the back of the net.

A single goal from Steven Naismith in injury time of the first half handed Everton the win, but it was a result that left Mourinho confused.

“I don't know if I have to say we didn't deserve to lose, or if I should say we deserved to lose,” said Mourinho

“We didn't deserve it (to lose) because we were the best team, because we play the best football, because we dominate the whole game, because we had 21 shots, because we risk everything we could...

“In that sense it is fair to say we deserved to win the game.

“But the other way, a team that has 21 shots, some of them easy shots and easy situations to score and we don't score and we have a mistake in the last minute of the first half...

“Maybe with that I should say we deserve to lose.”

A host of chances were missed by the likes of debutant Samuel Eto'o and Andre Schurrle which infuriated Mourinho.

The Chelsea manager, though, did not lay the blame on Eto’o, but instead opted to point out Schurrle’s misses.

“It was not just him [Eto’o]. I think Schurrle has missed three big chances to score, other players also had chances, but I don't like to be critical,” added Mourinho.
