JOHANNESBURG - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho looks very uncomfortable in his job, after his Blues went down 3-1 to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. The loss comes after they were knocked out of the League Cup, and currently sit in 15th on the Premier League table.

Ramires opened the scoring at Stamford Bridge, putting his Chelsea ahead within the first 5 minutes, but Liverpool grew into the game from there. Coutinho found an equalizer late on in the first half, curling a shot into the top corner from outside the box.

The second half saw Liverpool, under the leadership of Jurgen Klopp, continue their ascendancy, and Coutinho helped himself to a second goal, before Christian Benteke added another goal and even less respectability to the score line for the Blues.

After the match, manager Mourinho refused to answer any questions, simply saying that he has nothing to say on the match, the fans, his job, or any of his players.

With Chelsea now sitting in 15th position on the log, and just 5 points off the relegation zone, it's clear that questions will have to be asked about the future of Chelsea Football Club.
