It’s a pleasure and an honour to be Chelsea manager.
The Blues suffered yet another disappointing defeat as they went down 3-1 at Everton on Saturday afternoon.
I’m completely on their side.
Mourinho admitted it would be a struggle to retain the Premier League title after Chelsea’s third loss of the season, which leaves them with four points from five games.
The defeat at Goodison Park is not said to have been the main trigger, however, with Mourinho reportedly more upset about having had to wait for the post-match press conference.
But Mourinho claimed he had no complaints about his team’s performance and blamed bad luck for Chelsea’s woeful results.
After the game the Chelsea boss also refused to elaborate on his unsuccessful summer chase of Everton’s John Stones.
After the game, the Chelsea manager would speak only about how unlucky he felt his side had been. We are a team playing with doubts, because of the bad results we have had and because everything is going against us.

When a non-nonplussed Martinez replied: “We don’t control that Jose, I don’t control that”, the Chelsea boss said “F****** hell” before storming off and entering the Goodison media room, which Martinez had just departed and left free for him.
“It is dream stuff, I didn’t realise it was a flawless hat-trick until Jags (Phil Jagielka) came up to celebrate and told me”. But the players deserved more.
“We need confidence. I think confidence is fundamental”.
“You lose a player for the first time: a headed goal”. After that, a fantastic reaction.
“We controlled the game in the second half”.
