Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma is the latest star name to once again reiterate that the Chelsea players are fully behind their manager despite the club suffering seven defeat of the season already.

Chelsea have picked up only 11 points from the opening 12 games and are close to the relegation zone rather than near the top of the table. There have been suggestions that Mourinho has been unable to turn around the situation since there is a revolt within the dressing room. It would appear to be the case since the club were league champions only six months ago.

The performance against Stoke City might suggest that the players are fully behind the manager, but the 1-0 defeat is once again damaging for the club. Chelsea have now lost three games in a row and look far from even reaching the top four at the end of the season. It looks like Mourinho will remain as the Chelsea manager irrespective of the results. This decision could have been taken due to the massive payoff that the Portuguese will receive if he is sacked now. However, failure to qualify for the Champions League next season will be equally damaging – not just in terms of finances – if not more.

"I do not think that he is being let down by the players. We might not be at last year's level when it comes to our performances, but we are all together as a team. We all trust in Mourinho, just like the fans. I cannot explain our catastrophic start. It really is bizarre.We were Premier League champions last season... maybe it is a mental problem," said Zouma, who has been one of the better players this season. Zouma has been a first-team regular this season and has made 15 appearances in all competitions.
