Mourinho feels betrayed


Jose Mourinho has accused his Chelsea players of betraying him as they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat to Leicester, a result that leaves the Blues just one point above the relegation zone.

Jamie Vardy fired the Foxes into the lead at the King Power Stadium before Riyad Mahrez netted to give the Premier League leaders a 2-0 cushion in front of their home fans.

Loic Remy gave the Blues some hope as he scored with a 77th-minute header but they were unable to find the equaliser to leave the Blues counting the cost of another disappointing night.

It was Chelsea's ninth defeat of the campaign and speaking after the defeat Mourinho accused his players of not following his instructions.

"We conceded two goals that are unacceptable for me. I know one of my best qualities is to read the game for my players, to identify every detail about the opponent," Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"I feel that my work was betrayed. It's difficult for us to score goals when you have players who are not in their best level. When you have some players, especially in crucial positions, it's difficult.

"It's hard. All last season I did phenomenal work and I brought them to a level that is more than they really are."

Although the result leaves Chelsea 16th in the table, just one point above the drop zone, Mourinho insists the team are not in a relegation battle.

"No I don't believe this. We are in the relegation zone - an area in the table. But to be in a battle is to be there for three or four months and I don't think this will be so," he stated.
