Somebody tell Jose Mourinho to wake up and smell the coffee. The Chelsea boss has described his side’s 3-0 loss to Manchester City as “a fake result”. Coming from the Special One, it has to be a fake result.
Speaking shortly after the game yesterday. The Portuguese claimed Chelsea were the better side during the second half and that City’s decision to bring on Martin Demichelis handed them their emphatic victory.
He told Sky Sports. “The best team in the first half won the game. The best team in the second half was Chelsea for sure. We had a difficult first half, we didn’t create a lot and our goalkeeper made a few important saves.
“Second half everything was different. If the 1-0 was a doubtful result at minute 70, 3-0 is completely fake. At 1-0 Chelsea were the best team for the whole second half.”
They make a change because they feel 1-0 is in danger and we concede a second goal. If 1-1 a different story, their team is in trouble.
Their decision to bring on (centre-back) Martin Demichelis is an intelligent change, the sort of change I get criticised for all the time.
“Their midfield was in trouble, probably they should finish the game with nine men. In the end I have to be happy with the second half we did. That is not enough to win the game.”
Pellegrini’s reply to the ‘fake result” taunt”.
“In the first half we deserved at least three goals. It was more equal in the second half. Chelsea played better but I just remember Joe [Hart] making one save at 3-0. Our team played better and three is the least we deserved.”
