After Chelsea humiliatingly dismantled and thrashed by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, will the ‘Special One’, Jose Mourinho accepts defeat or will he blame someone for the defeat.
I think asking this question is legitimate and not out of place – he’s known for doing that – using sophisticated criticism, distraction and techniques.
So, far only two matches played in the Premier League and the opening game was not far from Mourinho blaming the 2-2 draw with Swansea City on the club doctor Eva Carneiro.
Just one question, as Manchester City scored once, twice and then three times past the defending Premier League champions en route to a comfortable 3-0 win at the Etihad, who will Jose Mourinho blame this time?

The blame game has already started, with Mourinho claiming Chelsea were on top of the second half and blasting City for making a defensive substitution.
Maybe we need the special eye of the special one, Jose Mourinho, to be able to say that Chelsea were the better side.
Anyone who watched the game could easily tell Manchester City were the best side (not even the better). It was pretty obvious; Chelsea were lacklustre in their performance.
City dominated throughout the entire game with Chelsea unable to create even just one threatening chance in the first half.
It is no surprise Chelsea’s first shot on target came in the 70th minute when Joe Hart saved Eden hazard’s shot in the box.
Mourinho claim that City made a defensive substitution, taking out Raheem Sterling and brining in Martin Demichelis in the 79th minute.
Can’t see where the problem is – as stated early on, one may need the special eye of Jose Mourinho to be able to tell if that was in bad faith.
Every good coach will make such adjustment with less than fifteen minutes to go and leading only by a goal.
The master of such tactics is even Mourinho himself, who will do everything to protect the ‘slim’ score-line with only fifteen minutes to go.
It is preposterous to hear Mourinho claim that Chelsea were the best team for the whole second half – and that if the 1-0 was a doubtful result at minute 70, 3-0 is completely fake.
To hear such statement is worth ridiculed.
It wasn’t just the 3-0 score-line – Anyone with functioning eyeballs could have told you just how comprehensively City outplayed their opponents – of course, except employees of Chelsea.
City scored two more goals in the second half in the 79th and 85th minute – after Pellegrini making ‘the so-called’ defensive substitution.
Jose, we know you too well – it is difficult for you to accept the defeat especially falling to no other person than Pellegrini, the man you called an engineer.
But please stop the blame game – it is only football.
After all, there are still 36 matches to play, and who knows Chelsea could retain the Premier League title.
