Jose Mourinho isn't full of kind words about his squad after the embarrassing Crystal Palace defeat

Steve Bardens

We stunk, and the manager knows it

Chelsea weren't good today, they weren't good at all. Most Chelsea fans are pretty angry with the performance, and apparently, they aren't alone. Jose Mourinho had some less-than-flattering things to say about a good portion of his players after Saturday's dismal 1-0 loss.

At this point, it's hard to find too much fault with anything Mourinho has said. Branislav Ivanovic wasn't particularly useful today, but that was certainly the exception rather than the norm. Aside from those four, the only two players who have been remotely consistent (in terms of useful performances) are Nemanja Matic and Petr Cech.

Today probably ended our title hopes for the 2013/14 season, and might have seen several layers cement their status as outgoing players with the performances they turned in today. It wouldn't be particularly hard to believe all of David Luiz, Fernando Torres, Demba Ba, and Frank Lampard playing elsewhere next season, though I'd have to say, the loss of Luiz would be relatively tough to swallow.

Regardless of what happens once the window opens this summer, here's hoping Mourinho's anger results in a much better performances against PSG this week, as a display as poor as this one will create an awfully deep hole against a side as good as the Ligue 1 leaders. Here's hoping the squad is ready for the hair dryer...
