Jose Mourinho: How we intend to solve the problem of not scoring enough goals


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he is working to find solutions to improve his team's goalscoring record.

The Blues have only scored 17 goals in the Premier League against the 32 of leaders Leicester City and the 30 of third-placed Manchester City.

But the Portuguese says that he is happy with what is being done on the training ground.

"We are having so many situations where you just need a tap in or one touch and we are not having that, that is for sure," Mourinho said.

"[How do you solve it?] It's what I am trying all the time.

"Sometimes collective as a group sometimes with the individuals players that should be in those positions. I feel our work is really good. There is a contradiction between our work and what is happening on the pitch.

"Statistics are statistics, but if you analyse the numbers you can get some good information.

"Match after match we have beaten Chelsea records of high intensity work. In the last three matches we beat the record three times. So we run and work more than ever.

"Our levels of ball possession are much higher than before. Our chances are higher than ever. But our number of goals is lower than ever. So football people like you are intelligent. You have the numbers, you can draw conclusions."
