Chelsea I blame myself for our 2-1 defeat, Jose Mourinho

mouChelsea manager Jose Mourinho says he should take the blame for his team’s champions league 2-1 defeat by Basel.  Oscar put the home side ahead but Mohamed Salah equalised for Basel and Marco Streller headed in a late winner for Basel. “When we lose I don’t speak about the players or individuals, I speak about my responsibility,” said Mourinho. “I am responsible. Normally you have to win the matches at home and get a few points away. Now we must win six points at home, Schalke and Steaua, but we have also to win points away.
Probably we have to go to win at Basel to compensate for the defeat today. But the objective of finishing in the top two in the group phase and to go to the next stage of the Champions League is an objective that is not lost – far from it. It’s an objective we’re going to fight for and it’s an objective that I believe very, very much that we’re going to achieve.”
New signing Samuel Eto’o started and Demba Ba was a second-half substitute, with Fernando Torres not on the bench. However, the Portuguese insisted he has no concerns over his striking options, despite a lack of goals from them. “I’m happy with the three strikers for the rest of the season,” he said.
