Mourinho: Calm, but not happy

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is understandably displeased by his team's sluggish start to the season, but is refusing to panic just yet.

A 2-2 draw with Swansea City on opening day was followed by a heavy 3-0 defeat to Manchester City to leave the Blues with just one point ahead of their match against West Brom at the Hawthorns on Sunday.

"Do we have to improve? Obviously. Always," Mourinho said. "We are calm, not happy, but calm. We need that.

"We need to be unhappy because that feeling makes you work better, better than ever when the results are not good and to be calm is very, very important too."

With a heavy cloud hanging over Stamford Bridge of late, Chelsea have delved into the transfer market to sign Pedro from Barcelona, adding the experienced Spaniard to a team that has been looking stale after last season's domestic success.

"One more option for me is not a problem," Mourinho said, when asked if the addition will disrupt his squad. "You have injuries, you have suspensions, different competitions to play.

"If you have one more winger in the group, it can be a problem for the wingers not getting the playing time they want, but for me it's not a problem."
