It was a call too close to call in the face off between Jose Mourinho the ‘Special One’ and Jurgen Klopp the ‘Normal One’. In the end, the verdict stunned everyone and has left Mourinho desperately fighting to keep his job at Chelsea.
Klopp got his first Premier League win as Liverpool boss with an excellent 3-1 victory at Chelsea.
Liverpool went behind in the opening five minutes when Ramires headed in Azpilicueta’s cros, however, a brace from Philip Coutinho and Christian Benteke, further compounded the woes of the defending champions and their manager.
Rather than celebrating his emphatic first win the Premier League, Klopp said he ‘feels’ for Mourinho as the pressure on the Portuguese’s job went a notch higher following the loss at Stamford Bridge.
Moruinho could be heading for the exit door as his team recorded their sixth league loss this season.
“I feel for him. He’s a great coach. I don’t think anyone in this room doubts he’s one of the best in the world.” Klopp said in a post-match interview.
Mourinho was expected to pick up where he left off from last season, where he guided Chelsea to Premier League glory and was lapping up all the praise.
However, this time around it has been anything but plain sailing for the 'Special One'.
The defeat is a whole lot worse for Mourinho and it is clear for all to see as he said absolutely nothing in his post-match interview.
The defeat to Liverpool means Chelsea have picked up just 11 points from 11 Premier League games and currently sit 15th in the Premier League table.
And to make matters worse the Blues have now lost nine games in all competitions - already eclipsing their tally of just four defeats last season, a situation that leaves Mourinho’s job hanging by a thread.
