Mourinho Slates Players After Draw To Newcastle

Jose Mourinho was less than pleased with his team’s performance against Newcastle at St. James’ Park on Saturday despite salvaging a point after being down 2-0.

Chelsea came back after falling down 2-0 against Newcastle. Ayoze Perez gave Newcastle United the lead in the 42nd minute. Georginio Wijnaldum doubled the lead in the 60th minute. Mourinho made two substitutes that turn out to be key in the comeback. Willian and Ramires came on in the second half, and Ramires put Chelsea on the board in the 79th minute with a thunderous blast. Willian then tied the game up in the 86th minute from a free-kick that went by everyone and snuck into the back of the net.

“There were too many individual performances that were awful,” Mourinho told The Guardian after the game. “When so many individuals are playing so badly it is impossible for a team to be a team.”

Mourinho said the game had been saved by the introduction of Ramires and Willian as substitutes. “They took the game to a different level and brought us both the goals to earn the point. Ramires is one of the few players we have who can shoot from outside the box, so he is a good option to bring on when the opposition is using a low block and making it difficult to get into the penalty area.”

Mourinho did have some positives to say about Ramires and Willian.

“They took the game to a different level and brought us both the goals to earn the point,” Mourinho said. “Ramires is one of the few players we have who can shoot from outside the box, so he is a good option to bring on when the opposition is using a low block and making it difficult to get into the penalty area.”
