Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes his team have the right DNA to be Premier League champions come end of the season
Chelsea beat Leicester 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, Mourinho later went on to described the team’s performance as “lazy” but says he saw glimpses of what his team are really capable of.
“Football is about adapting to everything, but the reality is that our way of thinking about football, the DNA we want in our team, is this one we are trying to show, maybe not for 90 minutes yet but we are showing in some moments,”he said.
Mourinho believes his team still need to work even harder
He added: “Everything feels good yes, but it is only two matches out of 38.
“The reality is not just that you win but that you show things, maybe not for 90 minutes and continuously, I can’t expect more than that.
“We are also showing a different style of play, and we have the players to play that way, so it is good to have a certain identity.
“We started the second half at 0-0, but never lost our identity, we never started playing in a different way, we are a pass-and-move team when we have the ball, we are doing that, we believe in that.
“The players are enjoying it, obviously we need to be more intense, defensively as well, we need to pass more, attack the man with the ball more.
“We need to improve more in many details, but the basic things are there and we believe in that.”
