Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho names seven out-of-form players for WBA match


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has criticised the fitness level of seven of his key players ahead of today's away game against West Bromwich Albion.

The Blues endured a terrible start to the new campaign after losing the FA Community Shield to Arsenal and suffering a heavy defeat at the hands of Manchester City last week.

And the Portuguese admits that his players have to improve if they are to retain the Premier League title they so easily won last season.

"I'm not happy with anyone," Mourinho told reporters.

"I'm not happy with Branislav Ivanovic's form, Gary Cahill, John Terry, Cesar Azpilicueta, Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic.

"I'm [also] not happy with my form, because I used to get better results than I'm getting now.

"So what we have been doing this week is being more active in training, watching more videos, working harder.

"I go to the gym every day now to get fitter. Maybe I need more action on the touchline, so I need to be fitter.

"I'm not happy with anyone, not one person. We have one point from two matches. I'm not happy at all. That's me. I'm either happy with everybody or not happy with anyone.

"Yes, I was the Happy One at one time. But I don't like to lose or for the players to have a better mentality than I have."
