Mourinho rues Chelsea's lack of killer instinct against Galatasaray

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his team are "paying" for a lack of cutting edge following a 1-1 draw at Champions League last-16 opponents Galatasaray.

The Premier League leaders were in control of the first leg in Istanbul after Fernando Torres's early opener.

But they conceded a poor second-half goal to leave the tie delicately poised ahead of the return leg on 18 March.
"Some other teams have three chances and score three goals. We have five and score one," said Mourinho.

"That's not a critique of the strikers but it's the profile of the team we have."
Chelsea dominated the first half at the Turk Telecom Arena, but were unable to double their advantage while they were in control.

And they were made to pay as Galatasaray equalised through Aurelien Chedjou to give the Turkish champions hope ahead of their trip to Stamford Bridge.
"We create but when we arrive in the final third of the pitch, the correct pass and right movement is something we don't have," said Mourinho, who appeared to criticise his strikers in footage that came to light earlier this week.

"We are paying for that. In the Premier League we are losing points and in the Champions League we could have had a different result."
While Chelsea rued their inability to take a lead back to London, Galatasaray were content with a home draw following a difficult start.
