Chelsea’s 3-1 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League quarter finals on Wednesday left a bitter sweet feel for the Blues’ boss, Jose Mourinho, who was disappointed with his players’ performance especially his attacking players.
Speaking to the press after that midweek tie, Mourinho admitted that he is forced to try out several things on that match and the second meeting as the tactician believes his team’s attacking quality is not better than their opponent.
The Portuguese tactician also defends his selection in starting Andre Schurrle in that first leg battle saying that the German international did helped Chelsea a lot in terms of ball possession.
Mourinho will definitely hope that he can get Samuel Eto’o back from injury for their second meeting at Stamford Bridge, especially since Fernando Torres’ perfrormance, who entered as substitute that midweek was far from convincing.
Losing 3-1 doesn’t necessarily means that everything is over for Chelsea as a 2-0 win can get them through into the next stage, but with such unconvincing performance from their strikers, things can really get difficult for Mourinho’s men.
