Mourinho calls for Chelsea demolition job
Jose Mourinho wants to see his Chelsea team turn dominance into goals whenever they get the chance this season, the Daily Telegraph has reported, as he warns his players their Premier League rivals will do likewise.
Mourinho marked his return to English football with a 2-0 win over Hull on Sunday but although the Blues were two goals up inside the first-half, they appeared to ease off after the break and did not convert their superiority into a more imposing score line, the newspaper adds. Such reticence was a hallmark of Mourinho’s first spell at Stamford Bridge, but the manager has called for a change in approach in the future.
“We want to win matches,” Mourinho said. “But what I like is that when you have the chance to destroy teams, to beat them by three, four, or five, we have to do it. If someone has the chance to do it to you, they will not forgive you, they will give you nothing. If someone feels that they can do it to us, they will do it.”
Chelsea meet Aston Villa on Wednesday in a rearranged league fixture, and in the corresponding match last season Chelsea, under Rafael Benitez, beat the Midlands side 8-0. Fernando Torres opened the scoring after three minutes and the goals flowed at regular intervals, with David Luiz, Branislav Ivanovic, Frank Lampard, Ramires (twice), Oscar and Eden Hazard all getting on the score sheet.
