Mourinho: Chelsea not 'strong enough'

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho admitted his side are not yet “strong enough” to take a stranglehold on the Premier League.

• Lythell:  Mourinho faced with Mata-Oscar conundrum
• Mourinho: Premiership will be unpredictable

The Stamford Bridge outfit sit in fifth position on the table, just outside the Champions League spots, and are four points adrift of leaders Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Chelsea sit only third in Group E of the Champions League after opening the account on the continent with a just one victory from two games.

And Mourinho fears any more dropped points could prove fatal to his young side and their attempts to claim silverware this season.

“We need to be more consistent,” Mourinho said. “If you see the position of Chelsea in the last leagues and the difference of points from Chelsea to the champions, you can imagine that even with a magic click - that I don't have - it's not easy to recover 20 points. It's more than one click.

“For a club like us it's not good to be 15, 20 points behind.

“I don't think we are strong enough at this moment to have that kind of run of victory, victory, victory.

“We will, for sure, we will. In this moment I don't think we are.”

And Mourinho believes the club needs to rediscover the winning culture that made his first spell at the club such a success before they can again dominate in all competitions.

“I had a team of players in the best moment, potentially, of their career,” Mourinho said of his first spell as boss. “I needed a click to make them believe. At this moment in terms of building a team, the task is different.

“We need to win seven matches 1-0, not win one match 7-0 and lose the other six, or lose points.

“This is the kind of mentality that you have to build. And it's much more difficult.

“I keep saying the day I lose a match and go home with a smile on my face, goodbye. Finished.

“We know we cannot win every game. We know we cannot win every competition, but we have to play every game of every competition to win.

“If you do that and you lose, don't go (home) with a smile on your face, but you'll sleep fine. Because you'll know you had the right approach, you gave everything.

“The opponent won because the opponent was better than you and that is something you have to accept without being a drama. The right mentality we have to find.”
