Jose Mourinho on injuries, his side's negative moment and the West Ham United game


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his side is not afraid to lose matches in the Premier League and will play "normally" against West Ham United.

The Blues will be without injured Thibaut Courtois, Branislav Ivanovic, Loic Remy and Pedro with striker Diego Costa expected to keep his place after returning from suspension last week.

"[Injuries?] The same, exactly the same," Mourinho told reporters.

"That means the quartet who missed our trip to Kiev – Thibaut Courtois, Branislav Ivanovic, Loic Remy and Pedro – remain unavailable.

"At the moment we are not afraid to lose matches in the Premier League, we are going to play normally.

"We could immediately feel some individual performances from the last two results and performances. To give you one example, Matic went from being on the bench against Aston Villa, to playing the second half against Aston Villa positively, to being the man of the match three days later.

"Other players also improved their performances, so [it has been] a bit better.

"The team and players have always been together. The players have been man enough to assume responsibilities and even publically say that. Statistics are very clear for us.

"As an example we have conceded six goals as a consequence of isolated individual mistakes, but the team were always together.

'We have got two important results, three points in the Premier League after two matches without a victory, and against a direct rival in the Champions League we got a point away.

"The group was always solid and compact and together but obviously the mood improves with results and people are happy."
