Mourinho could be losing the special touch – In recent weeks, the Portuguese boss has made some intriguing decisions. Sending Didier Drogba on against Paris Saint-Germain, when the pacier and more energetic Juan Cuadrado could have provided a counter attacking threat on Wednesday seemed bizarre and his inclination not to play starlet Ruben Loftus-Cheek, despite his progression this season, would suggest Mourinho is fearful about losing his grip on top spot. 5 4. The goals are drying up – At the start of the campaign, Jose Mourinho’s men were rampant. Six goals against Everton and NK Maribor, five against Schalke and four against Swansea City, but now they’ve only hit four goals in their last four Premier League games. And Diego Costa is now SEVEN games without a goal. Worrying. 1. A tough run in – Chelsea have a game in hand and sit five points above Manchester City but with games against Southampton, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool all to come they could drop a few points. It may also concern Mourinho his men have to face four sides that are battling against the drop, especially following their defeat to Sunderland at the end of last season. 2. ‘The Campaign’ – If there truly is a ‘campaign’ against the Blues, as Mourinho says there is, we can expect a few decisions to go against them in the coming weeks. Chelsea shouldn’t anticipate any more penalties for a while, and many other things could be about to scupper their chances of glory in the Premier League. 5.
