​Players doing their best for Mourinho insist Chelsea's Brazilian stars

Chelsea's Brazilian duo Oscar and Ramires believe the club's playing group are doing all they can to ease the pressure on embattled manager Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho's future at Stamford Bridge was called further into question following the Blues' 3-1 loss to Liverpool on Saturday.

However, Oscar and Ramires were both adamant the Portuguese boss still has the support of his players.

Forward Oscar said: "Everybody tries to help him but the situation is not good for Jose and for the players and the fans but for Chelsea, we need to start winning again.

Ramires said: 'We try to help him on the pitch, we couldn't help him on Saturday but we will try every match to win because this is a group and a team and if we lose, Jose loses as well, so we are all together.

"It is difficult because when we lose a game, everyone is sad in the dressing room. The manager didn't say anything because it was not the time but on Sunday we have a conversation and he will show to us what we did in the game.

"We need to play like we played before to win games."
