Jose mourinho’s Chelsea continued their run of poor performance as they drew 2-2 with Newcastle yesterday. The blues were two goals down by the hour mark at St James Park were they had to scramble two late goals to secure one point from the game. Ayoze perez opening the scoring for the magpies just before the half time whistle and then Georginio Wijnaldum doubled their lead, heading home the ball following a corner kick. But with twelve minutes remaining on the clock, Mourinho had to introduce substitutes Ramires and Willian who came on to change the game. Ramires started the comeback scoring a shot from 20 yards in the 79th minute before Willian drew level for the team from a dead ball.
Newcastle might be disappointed with the result given that they just needed to hold on for twelve more minutes to secure all three points. Mourinho has gone on to criticize the mentality of his opponents stating that this maybe the reason why the team never wins anything. According to him the Newcastle team brings out their all whenever they are playing against Chelsea and just play normally in other matches. It is worthy to note that Jose Mourinho has never won a league match at St James Park. Mourinho has blamed his team loss on bad individual performances stating that if he had his way, he would have changed at least six players after the first half. This result leaves Chelsea seven points behind new premier league leaders Manchester United but the league is still very much open considering that only seven games have been played so far.
