Despite conceding six goals in two games, Jose Mourinho insists he will not change Chelsea’s playing style.

The Blues lost 3-2 to Stoke City on Saturday, following a 4-3 win over Sunderland in midweek, but Mourinho is not about to go and alter his game plan as he would rather press on than sit back and defend.

"Am I going to change the style of play? (Bring in) more defensive players? No,” he said ahead of Wednesday night’s Champions League meeting with Steaua Bucharest at Stamford Bridge.

"Am I going to play David Luiz in front of the central defenders? No.

"Am I going to play with 4 plus 2 and the wingers closing behind, leaving Fernando (Torres) in attack, waiting for a counter-attack, waiting for a long ball, to try and win 1-0? No.

"We go in the same direction. We are creating a lot, we have to score goals and kill opponents.

"You can tell me 'but you lost when you scored two goals away (at Stoke on Saturday)'. I know, because, at the same time, we are conceding goals defensively.

"Maybe you laugh but I think, in this moment, if we train defensive corners, against the dummies, I think one dummy will score!

"All the rebounds go to the opponents, and I think the rebounds will go to the dummies too."
