Maicon con­demns Mour­inho to loss on Porto re­turn

The Herald - Sport - - FOOTBALL -

JOSE MOUR­INHO’S re­turn to for­mer club Porto ended in a dis­ap­point­ing 2-1 Cham­pi­ons League de­feat as Chelsea’s mis­er­able start to the sea­son con­tin­ued.

Chelsea lost to Porto on Mour­inho’s pre­vi­ous re­turn in 2004-05 and history re­peated it­self at Es­ta­dio do Dra­gao as An­dré An­dré and Maicon scored ei­ther side of Wil­lian’s free-kick.

Eden Haz­ard dropped to the sub­sti­tutes bench along­side cap­tain John Terry and Ne­manja Matic as Mour­inho proved there were no un­touch­ables in his squad.

As­mir Be­govic could only punch Yacine Brahimi’s shot as far as An­dré, who hooked the ball in. Wil­lian replied with a curl­ing free-kick on half-time, but then woe­ful de­fend­ing al­lowed Maicon to head in a cor­ner.
