In his first season in charge of Chelsea, the Blues romped to the title in grand style. However, the shock defeat they suffered against Everton at Goodison Park, means they have made the worst league start in the Abramovich era and are already behind Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool.
Mourinho said: “No, it is not 2004 all over again.
“Then we lost against Manchester City in October – our only defeat. But that is not the point. We are not unbeatable. This is a different team.
“I came here to work – I don’t say peacefully because I am the first one that does not like to work peacefully – but to work with time, to develop the players and play the best they and we can.
“We have to be effective, be adult and not naive. That is what we have to work on. We have to transform the beautiful football we played into goals.”
Mourinho also insisted that it has not been an easy start to the season, but made it clear they were willing to fight their way back.
“We are not a club who will accept in a cool way that things will come. We’re going to chase it,” he added.
“The beginning of the season was hard. Away against Manchester United, away in the Super Cup against Bayern, and away against Everton.
“But Saturday was the story of a team with 21 shots that couldn’t score a goal. That is the beauty of football.”
