Chelsea has been dominant at home this season winning five out of five games. On the road they’ve been less successful winning one out of five games and getting two draws and two defeats. That includes a 2-0 loss at Newcastle on Saturday.
“At home, five games, five victories — and, away, five matches, one victory, two defeats,” Mourinho told his club’s official website.
“We can also say that we played away in very difficult stadiums. We played at Man United, Tottenham, Newcastle and Everton — we played in probably the most difficult places to go — but I have to analyze it by another perspective which is the perspective of why we don’t do better, and why especially on Saturday, because that was the worst.
“Against Everton we were really unlucky because we had a fantastic first half and in the second half we had a clear penalty for us and the referee didn’t give it. At Newcastle, we had the kind of match we have to analyze deeply because it was the worst.”
Chelsea’s offense has struggled away as well. In 5 games at home Chelsea has scored 16 goals, on the road Chelsea has scored only four. Chelsea plays Schalke on Wednesday in Champions League play, fortunately for Mourinho’s squad the game is at home.
