In a move that surprises all,Chelsea manager,Jose Mourinho has blamed himself for the home loss suffered by his team against Crystal Palace.
The Blues boss says he should have made changes during his side’s shock defeat to Crystal Palace but feels that, on the whole, his team did not deserve to lose the game.
Mourinho says he blames himself for the champions’ 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
The Blues slumped to their second Premier League loss of the season thanks to Joel Ward’s winner after Radamel Falcao had equalised Bakary Sako’s opener.
The result leaves Chelsea eight points behind Manchester City after just four games and Mourinho says he must take his share of the blame for the result.
“I cannot say I had 11 players at the same time performing. To be fair, two or three of them, individual performances were far from good,” he told reporters.
“I blame myself for not changing one of them, because I kept him in the game for 90 minutes. When I made the third change.”
Mourinho didnt end without being himself as he has a word for the referee
“Finally, the referee, with a big mistake, a clear penalty with the result at 0-0.”
