Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho claims ‘I am the man for the job’ after DIRE Everton loss

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho claimed he was still the man for the job following his side’s 3-1 defeat to Everton, reports the BBC.

The Blues were roundly beaten by the Toffees, and the loss leaves them with just four points from their first five games of the season. If Manchester City are able to beat Crystal Palace it could leave the Citizens already 11 points ahead of the side most expected to challenge them for the Premier League title.

“I am not feeling pressure,” said the 52-year-old, “The results are the worst in my career. They are not adapted to my quality, my status, but I am coping well with the situation.

“I am the man for the job. I don’t think there is better man who could come and do my job. Even if we win every game between now and the end of season, we still depend on other results.”

The three goals that the Stamford Bridge outfit have also left them with the worst defence in the top flight. In their five matches to date they have conceded 12 times, two more than the next poorest, Sunderland. For a manager with a reputation for defensive solidity this will be especially disappointing.

Next up in the league for Chelsea are Arsenal, who will be another tough test for the team. The Gunners are another side who were expected to challenge for the title before the campaign began, but are yet to hit their straps after a defeat to West Ham and scraped victories over Crystal Palace and Newcastle United.
