Rabat – Chelsea’s evening at Stamford Bridge has turned into another hard to swallow loss for the team. Southampton defeated the ‘blues’ 3-1, becoming Chelsea’s fourth loss in eight matches this season.
A weekend that promised to be critical for José Mourinho’s club has just turned into a nightmare. The former Premier League champions suffered another defeat into what has already been a terrible period for the British club.
Southampton has put Chelsea 10 points behind the current leader of the Premier League, Manchester United and 4 points away from sitting at the relegation zone.
Chelsea led the first 10 minutes of the match when midfielder Willian scored a goal. However, the Saints Davis, Mane and Pelle inflicted 3 goals to an already weakened ‘blues’ squad.
José Mourinho has now experienced what it feels to lose twice in places that he called home, at Dragon Stadium in his beloved Portugal when Porto defeated Chelsea 2-1, and now at the ‘blues’ home ground at Stamford Bridge.
Mouronho admitted this week that this is “the worst period of my career with the worst results.” He was looking forward to the match against Southampton. He has now another ‘great negative experience’ as he has called this season, to add to his career.
