Mourinho: We Need to Score

Speaking ahead of his side’s crunch English Premier League match against Liverpool on Sunday, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says his side have to be more clinical in front of goal.

Compared to their counterparts Chelsea have scored ten less goals than Liverpool this season in the league and if they are to win Mourinho admits they have to ruthless in front of goal.

“For Chelsea to beat Liverpool, we need to score more goals with less chances,” said Mourinho.

“Normally you don't create against Liverpool five or six or seven big chances. You get two or three and you need to score. We need to score more.”

Mourinho also has a lot of respect for his opposition number on the day, saying Brendan Rodgers is a good coach.

Rodgers was one of Mourinho's former pupils at Chelsea, having worked under the Portuguese manager before embarking on his own managerial career.

“We [Mourinho and Rodgers] speak about basic things, 'Good luck', 'Well done', 'How's family?', 'Happy Christmas',” added Mourinho.

“He was always a very open guy, open to learn, open to give his opinion, very interested in the game. We like him very much, me and my staff, we liked him very much since he started working with us.

“He's at one of the top clubs in England, one of the top clubs in the world. His ambitions now are to win titles at a big club.”
