Jose Mourinho has defended the Ghana Black Stars Michael Essien after Southampton got an early lead due to an error by Essien.
Chelsea won the match 3-1 at Stamford Bridge, with goals from Gary Cahill in the 55th minute, John Terry in the 62nd minute while Demba Ba score in the 90th minute of the game to give Chelsea a win.
Chelsea is still four points behind the leaders Arsenal.
Michael Essien back pass in the first minute which put Southampton in the front just 13 seconds from the kick off. That put Jose Mourinho unbeaten run in danger at home under danger.
Talking to the media Jose Mourinho said, everyone makes a mistake, its common. Goalkeepers make mistakes, Strikers miss clear goals and even midfielders lose the ball. So it’s part of the game what is important that in the end we won.
He also plays like Mikel or even Luiz, the way they play in midfield for the team.
Mourinho is also happy with the team come back especially the way they reacted to the situation after going down 1-0 in the first half.
Although we are one goal down in the first half but the players didn’t make any further mistakes.
I have to change my formation to 4-4-2 when I no option left than to change Oscar in the second half. I had to play with two strikers and that move really confused our opponent, because they are not expecting that so they could not handle it.
Chelsea will play their next match against Sunderland on December 4.
