Chelsea Situation Not Good For Mourinho - Oscar

By 09:42 Sun, 01 Nov 2015 Comments

The Portuguese coach is under huge pressure

as their Premier League title defence lies in

tatters, but the Stamford Bridge boss has been

backed by two of his Brazilian stars.

Brazil internationals Oscar and Ramires have

admitted that "the situation is not good" for

Jose Mourinho following Chelsea’s 3-1 defeat

to Liverpool, but remain united behind the


Chelsea’s worst ever start to a Premier League

season continued on Saturday as Liverpool

came back from Ramires’ early opener down to

overcome the title holders at Stamford Bridge.

Philippe Coutinho notched a brace before

Christian Benteke piled more pressure on

Mourinho, but Ramires and Oscar insist that

“everybody” at Chelsea is still behind the

under-fire Portuguese coach.

“Everybody tries to help [Mourinho] but the

situation is not good for Jose and for the

players and the fans but for Chelsea, we need

to start winning again,” Oscar told the club’s

official website.

“It is very disappointing because we played so

well in the first half but at the end of it, Coutinho

scored but we tried, we came back for the

second half and we played well again but we

had a lot of bad luck. They scored two and it

was a difficult game for us.”

Lucas Leiva was fortunate to remain on the

pitch after controversially avoiding a second

booking for tripping Ramires – an incident which

the Liverpool midfielder later praised referee

Mark Clattenburg for – and Oscar feels Jurgen

Klopp’s side got more fortune on Saturday.

“We tried everything all the game but everything

was for Liverpool," he said. “Liverpool played

the second half better than us.

“Coutinho played well, we tried everything but

we didn’t win. We need to keep going.”

Goalscorer Ramires was also frustrated with

the result – leaving the title holders adrift in

15th position, 14 points off table toppers

Manchester City - but says that the Chelsea

squad will remain together despite their poor


“We started very well and in the second half we

had a chance to score a second, but we didn’t

score and they did and then they win,” he said.

“It is difficult because when we lose a game,

everyone is sad in the dressing room.

“The manager didn’t say anything because it

was not the time but on Sunday we have a

conversation and he will show to us what we

did in the game.

“We try to help him [Mourinho] on the pitch - we

couldn’t help him on Saturday but we will try

every match to win because this is a group and

a team and if we lose, Jose loses as well so we

are all together.

“We need to play like we played before to win

the games.”
