Jose Mourinho has urged Chelsea’s critics to judge his struggling team at Christmas, when the table will represent a “better picture.”
Mourinho’s Chelsea have endured a poor start to the defence of their title, with the side currently 12th in the table ahead of Saturday’s game at West Ham.
The Blues returned to winning ways last weekend as they defeated Aston Villa 2-0, and Mourinho is confident they are heading in the right direction.
He said: “In every moment you can take notice of the table. But we used to say that half of the championship, end of December, you get a better picture.
“Everybody will have played 19 matches. Half way is a good moment to look at the table, but every moment means something.”
Chelsea trail leaders Manchester City by 10 points, and Mourinho added: “At this moment they are where they are, not because someone gave them something, but because they played for it.”
