Jose Mourinho: ‘Chelsea may only achieve top-six finish’

Jose Mourinho has admitted that Chelsea’s hopes of finishing in the top four could be over following the 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.

Glenn Murray’s late winner for the Cherries was enough to produce an angry response from the Chelsea boss, who placed the blame on the officials for failing to spot that the striker was in an offside position.

It was another frustrating day for the Premier League champions as they suffered an eighth defeat of the campaign, and Mourinho claims that the club may have to change their targets.

“Our objective is to finish top four,” he told Sky Sports. “Before this game it was realistic to think that our quality would take us out of this position but maybe now we have to think about top six. “If our players are not able to give the maximum every day that is a problem.

If you analyse match after match there are a few layers where it is difficult to be consistent. You think there is evolution, but maybe it is just one moment in which they are good.”

Mourinho’s side now switch their focus to Wednesday’s game against Porto as they aim to secure a spot in the Champions League knockout stage.
