Terry’s relationship with Mourinho has been the subject of intense speculation for a week following Mourinho’s decision to substitute Terry at halftime of Chelsea’s 3-0 loss to Manchester City last Sunday.
We have to train 11 against 10. We have done it a couple of times already in Canada. Ten men when you are winning. We must have clear ideas about it so it’s something we have to do in training, and that is the only thing in our hands’. “Ten men when you are losing.”
Boss Mourinho questioned the red card, but Rondon believes referee Mark Clattenburg got it right, although still feels Terry has quality.
Reigning champions Chelsea are still looking to win their first game of the new Premier League season when they play West Bromwich Albion today.
Pedro Rodriguez has heaped praise on his new Chelsea team-mates for the warm welcome they have given him since his arrival at the club last week.
In an end-to-end game, West Brom reduced the deficit when Chris Brunt’s deep cross was volleyed back into the center of the area acrobatically by Rondon, and Morrison arrived near the penalty spot to drill a low shot past Courtois. The debutant Pedro was among the scorers and also provided an assist to Diego Costa. He picked up the ball and ran at the West Brom defence, before playing a one-two with Eden Hazard and knocking it into the corner with a slight deflection.
Morrison fired home through a melee of bodies to halt Chelsea’s momentum before Azpilicueta netted his first Premier League goal three minutes before halftime. Hopefully we can break the curse of the Hawthorns as after our worse start in the Premier League since 1998 it is vital we win. I prefer to do what I’m doing or trying to do since the beginning of the championship which is to focus on the game. I find him a different person away from the cameras, I like him.
