London, Oct 24 (IANS) Chelsea head coach Jose Mourinho insists that his side, which has had a terrible start to their English Premier League (EPL) title defence, should only be judged after December.
Chelsea are presently 12th in the league table with just 11 points from nine games.
“We used to say that half of the championship, (at the) end of December, you get a better picture,” Mourinho was quoted as saying by goal.com.
Chelsea’s next opponent is West Ham United who are currently fourth in the points table with 17 points from their nine outings.
“Everybody will have played 19 matches. Half way is a good moment to look at the table, but every moment means something. At this moment (West Ham) are where they are, not because someone gave them something, but because they played for it.”
