VIDEO: Is Chelsea’s defensive style boring? Do they need to entertain us?

1 Comment

Chelsea and Jose Mourinho have come in for plenty of “stick” following their 1-0 win over Manchester United on Saturday when the Portuguese coach set his side up to defend and they duly put in a defensive masterclass. Is it correct to criticize their style of play when they’re on the brink of winning the Premier League title?

Yes, Mourinho’s boys haven’t been at their entertaining best in recent weeks but they have churned out three-straight wins by a one-goal margin and need just eight points from their final six games to clinch the 2014-15 PL title.

At the start of the season we thought a new Chelsea had been born with Cesc Fabregas pulling the string and the likes of Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Oscar ripping teams apart.

However at the business end of the season Mourinho has set up his side in a more defensive manner and the Blues are somewhat limping towards the PL title.

Is there anything wrong with that? Is it smart coaching from someone who has won league titles in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain? Should Chelsea be worried that they aren’t entertaining the masses?

Our analysts break all of that down in the video above. So, what do you guys think?
