When asked to describe Chelsea's win at Crystal Palace Jose Mourinho scribbled on a Journalist's notepad "Big Balls" (as in the photo above) I am wondering if you agree?
‘If you were in another league I would say immediately “yes, we’ll do it”. In the Premier League the only thing I can say is that we can do it.
In the Premier League it is stupid to say you’re going to do it because there are so many good teams and a long way to go - some very difficult runs in front of us.
What is obvious - what you all feel - is that we are a better team than last season. There is a clear evolution. It’s not based on the fact that we bought two fantastic players [Costa and Cesc Fabregas].’
Chelsea have picked up victories against Aston Villa and Crystal Palace so far this term in games we struggled in last season and there is an obvious difference in our game now.
I know it's early in the season but at the moment, in games we struggled to break teams down in and ran out of ideas, we seem to have the answers and keep passing the ball to death to open the door which is a good sign already.
No Costa and we still take three points in what looked like being a difficult game. That's "balls" as Jose calls it for you.
What do you think? Does this Chelsea team have balls?
