The Blues’ start to the new season has been woeful as they have picked up only a win and a draw after four rounds of matches, a situation which makes it increasingly difficult for the team to defend their EPL trophy.

Their home defeat by Crystal Palace all but confirmed the coach’s confusion as the players go to their respective countries for the international break.

The one-time Real Madrid coach has now expressed his worries as his players are due to return a few days before he prepares to take on Everton in the Premier League, reports.

“Because of the international break, the next match [against Everton] is in 15 days.

“I don’t know what happens in 15 days; every player goes away with their national team and I stay for two weeks with four players.

“I can’t work, I can’t improve. At this moment, I can’t do anything during these two weeks to improve my team,” the former Inter Milan manager ranted.

Mourinho, who recently stated his anger at his players, was also mooted as the first EPL manager who may be sacked this season following his side’s indifferent start to their title defence.
