Chelsea boss Mourinho frustrated after shock Everton defeat

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was left frustrated by the manner of their shock 1- 0 defeat at Everton.

Steven Naismith, on his 27th birthday, scored the only goal seconds before half-time at Goodison Park and despite Chelsea creating a number of opportunities they could not find a way through.

"We didn't score goals. We had chances and chances but we didn't score," said Mourinho.

"If you don't score, what you create means nothing. It is a simple story. Artistic football without goals is not good.

"This was the game when we had 21 shots, nine attempts on target and well before they scored the goal we had easy chances to score.

"I don't think it is a question of sharpness. If the ball to Eto'o from (Andre) Schurrle is sent as a slow pass and Eto'o waits for the ball Barry has time to come.

"If it is a fast ball Eto'o scores with an open goal - I don't think this defeat is about sharpness.

"Perhaps there was not the killer instinct: one chance, one goal. Maybe one day we will have three chances and score three goals and win 3-0."
