Jose Mourinho thinks Chelsea are too predictable: 'They are an easy team to analyse'
- The Portuguese states The Blues have some 'fundamental principles' that make it easy for the opponent to prepare for the game.
- He believes stopping Jorginho is always fatal for the club.
- Our ex-boss has no doubts N'Golo Kante can play everywhere.
Jose Mourinho, Chelsea's former manager was on the punditry duty during the Premier League clash between The Blues and The Gunners. Shortly after the game, the Portuguese was asked about the way Maurizio Sarri's players performed and why they failed to get three points. Apparently, our ex-boss thinks Chelsea are too predictable.
"They [Arsenal] had the right approach. Not just mentally, they were really aggressive, they were there to win the first duel and that normally means a lot in the development of the game. So tactically, spot on. I don't think Chelsea is an easy team to play against but I think it's an easy team to analyse. You analyse Chelsea quite easily. You know their principles, the fundamental situations."
Jose insists Jorginho is the club's most important players and if the opponent manages to stop the Italian The Blues immediately face problems: "You create great difficulties to Chelsea to build in the first phase, and then if you close their left side with David and Marcos Alonso, it'll be difficult for them. Arsenal managed to create them great difficulties."
When asked about N'Golo Kante's new role under Sarri, Mourinho said: "I think he can play everywhere, I think he has the qualities to play box-to-box like Maurizio is trying with him."
