The defending champions of the Premier League could not have gotten off to a worse start, with only a single point from the 6 available. They were held up by Swansea on the opening weekend and then were thrashed by Manchester City for a 3-0 drubbing.
The Chelsea side that everyone saw last season, is nowhere to be seen. The defence, once so solid, is now looking a lot vulnerable and could do with some additions. And this is exactly what Jose Mourinho did over the last week. Chelsea finished up the deal for the young defender Baba Rahman to bolster the backline and more importantly got Pedro signed up from Barcelona which will be a tremendous boost to their Attacking front.
Mourinho when spoken to before the game was very positive about the new signings. He said
“We normally train very well but this week we train better than ever. Why? Because we’re not happy with the results,” said Mourinho, who will welcome back goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois from suspension. We want to do better and the only way is to work well and better than ever, which we did this week.
“This week we got very good young left-back [Rahman] that we need. We also get one of the best attackers in the world [Pedro]. A player with lots of experience and with something I really like, a desire to leave a giant club. A desire to leave one of the best clubs in world, where normally when you’re there you don’t want to leave. He is loved in the club, he loves the club and he wants to leave for something more for his career.
That is an evident sign of ambition, he wants to play every game. For many years he won everything with [Lionel] Messi, [Andres] Iniesta, with stars, but he wants more. I’m really happy with that kind of attitude. He comes to play, to win and to enjoy. He’s not on a holiday.”
West Bromwich on the other side are not taking their opponents lightly. The head coach for the team, Pulis, Said
“A crisis after two games? Every time you play one of the top teams [you can expect a backlash]. If they play to their level, he could have Pedro and [Eden] Hazard wide, [Diego] Costa up front – it’s not bad is it.
They’re a fantastic team, champions elect and they deserved to win it by a country mile last year because they were that far ahead of everyone else.It’s wonderful for me to be in the Premier League and work against top managers, there’s no better manager in the world than Jose Mourinho and it’s a privilege.”
