Mourinho has pot shot at Chelsea strikers Ba, Eto'o, Torres

Jose Mourinho will refrain from targeting January strike signings despite suggesting his Chelsea attack is under-performing.

Demba Ba, Samuel Eto'o and Fernando Torres have scored just four Premier League goals between them this season but that won't necessarily force the Blues boss into the winter transfer market.

Mourinho bemoaned the goal-shy trio following Saturday's shock 3-2 loss to Stoke City but reports indicate that he won't make any rash changes in the winter window.

"If you tell me Sergio Aguero has scored already 10 or 12 goals, Alvaro Negredo 10 or 12 goals, Edin Dzeko four or five, Wayne Rooney eight or 10, Olivier Giroud eight or 10, Daniel Sturridge eight or 10, Luis Suarez 10 or 12 and ask me would I like my strikers to score eight,10, 12 goals, yes of course," he said.

"If we had eight,10,12 goals from the strikers, we would be top of the league. That's a reality."
