Mourinho fumes at 'ridiculous' defending

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho admitted defensive mistakes cost his side dearly in their 3-1 Champions League loss to PSG.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was scathing in his assessment of Chelsea's defending as a late Javier Pastore strike handed Paris Saint-Germain a 3-1 advantage in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal.

Jose Mourinho shows his anger during Chelsea's defeat in Paris.
Jose Mourinho cut a frustrated figure on the touchline.

Eden Hazard's penalty either side of Ezequiel Lavezzi's stunning opening strike and David Luiz's own goal had handed Chelsea a crucial away strike, but Javier Pastore's last-gasp effort tipped the tie dramatically in the Parisians' favour.

The Argentine wriggled away from several challenges on the byline before cutting inside and beating Petr Cech from a narrow angle, which drew a stinging response from the coach.

"He [Gary Cahill] says sloppy. I say ridiculous," Mourinho told Sky Sports. "We played against a great team, full of good players especially attacking players. You would expect them to score fantastic goals. Not the goals they scored.

"We lose the first goal in an easy position and we assist the striker. Nobody in second goal was there for a crucial position.

"The second goal one of my players scores an own goal, it's unlucky, but the way the team positioned themselves defensively was not the right one. Finally, the third goal was sloppy -- Gary uses that word -- but for me, ridiculous."

Mourinho has lamented his striking options all season -- Samuel Eto'o was unavailable in Paris through injury -- and suggested Chelsea's lack of firepower made hope of recovering the tie a tough prospect.

"It is a difficult job but not impossible," he said. "They are the type of team that out of nothing they can score goal.

"We are not a team full of talent to score goals, especially at this level. But you never know. We have to try. We have to go with everything. Let's try."

Cahill admitted Chelsea face a tough task to reach the semifinals after Pastore's late strike.

"It was a horrible time to concede," Cahill added. "It's a sloppy goal and unlike us. It's a big blow at 2-1. It was difficult to come here; 2-1 would have been okay to take to Stamford Bridge. It's devastating."

Zlatan Ibrahimovic limped off in the 68th minute with a leg injury, and PSG manager Laurent Blanc was unsure of his status for the second leg.

"Zlatan felt a slight muscular pain; I'm not sure whether it's his calf or his hamstring. We'll have to look after that but it will require a certain amount of rest," Blanc said.
