Jose Mourinho remains upbeat that he will remain as the Chelsea manager

Jose Mourinho remains upbeat that he will remain as the Chelsea manager despite the latest 3-1 defeat against Liverpool.

This was the sixth league defeat of the season for the blues, who have created a new record for the worst defence of the league title in the history of the Premier League. This season went from bad to worse in the space of a few days for Mourinho after he watched his team suffered a League Cup exit in their first-round at the hands of Stoke City. Last season, the blues won the league title along with the League Cup.

After having already lost the chance to win two titles, the only hope for Chelsea will now be to revive their campaign with some solid football over the next few months. This would at least give them a hope in the Champions League or the FA Cup. However, there are suggestions that Mourinho may not be in charge to see successes in this campaign. Chelsea are reportedly planning to sack him in the next few days despite only recently giving public backing of the manager. Since the backing from Abramovich a few weeks ago, results have not improved at all.

Carlo Ancelotti is ready and available to take over, but Mourinho has been defiant in the postmatch press conference. “I have no doubt [the players are still performing for him]. If some individual performances were below a normal level, there were not many. A maximum a couple. Even these ones, they suffered because they are not able to do more.The team is together. The fight goes on, but sometimes there are fights that are impossible to win. You go into a fight with different ammunition. And there are some fights you cannot win,” said the Portuguese boss after the defeat against Liverpool.
