Jose Mourinho branded Antonio Conte’s Chelsea a more defensive team than his Chelsea title-winning team of 2015 despite Conte’s Chelsea scoring more goals and winning more games.
Former Chelsea defender Graeme Le Saux revealed Mourinho was rude and completely wrong to criticise Conte’s Chelsea.
“Jose Mourinho was a little rude about Chelsea after last weekend’s matches, criticising Conte’s side for defensive football,” Le Saux told Betfair.
“But that’s typical Mourinho, up to his usual mischief.
“Chelsea are not a negative side – the goals for column tells you that!
“Whether you think Chelsea play a back three or five it’s irrelevant really.
“They’re a five when they need to be and a three when they need to be.
“And we have seen how destructive wingbacks Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses can be when they go forward.
“What I like about Chelsea is that even when they are under pressure they always offer a threat on the counter.
“They’re great athletes and can get from back to front in no time at all.”
