LONDON (AFP) - Under-pressure Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho kept his thoughts to himself after his side's wretched season continued with a 3-1 home defeat by Liverpool on Saturday.

Philippe Coutinho scored twice and Christian Benteke was also on target at Stamford Bridge as Liverpool condemned the misfiring Premier League champions to their sixth defeat of the campaign.

Mourinho's position has come under intense scrutiny on account of his team's desperate form, with some reports suggesting he is close to being sacked.

 

But when asked about his future after the game during a curious televised interview with BT Sport, he responded to a succession of questions by saying: "I have nothing to say."

Pressed over his future, he said he was not worried, and added that Chelsea's fans, who chanted his name throughout the game, were "not stupid".
