Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was fuming after the Blues were dumped out of the Champions League on away goals by Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night.
The west London club, who were playing at home and had the advantage of an away goal from the first leg, but were unable to prevent the Ligue 1 club from scoring at Stamford Bridge despite taking the lead twice during the game.
Mourinho was clear in his assessment and understands that the performance of his team did not warrant progress into the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Both goals conceded by the Blues were from corners and the manager has pointed out to individual performances that were not good enough to prevent former Chelsea player David Luiz and then PSG skipper Thiago Silva from getting on the score sheet.
"We didn't deserve to go through," Mourinho said, as quoted by talkSPORT.
"When a team cannot defend two corners and concedes two goals, a team doesn't deserve to win."
"The individual performances were not good enough and when you concede two goals from two corners it's about lack of concentration, lack of responsibility to cope with the markers and the space you have to control," the Portuguese manager explained.
"When a team cannot cope with the pressure of being one player more and playing at home... we couldn't cope with that pressure. We deserved to be punished with this draw, defeat."
However, the manager has called on his team to react strongly to this defeat when they take on Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday.
Mourinho has admitted that he is not going to lose too much sleep over their Champions League exit and believes that wining the Premier League, which they are favourites to do, along with the League Cup will represent a successful campaign for the club.
"We need to react. We have the Premier League to win. We lost a competition where even if we had won today you have other important steps in front of you and other big teams to beat," the former Real Madrid manager said.
"We have the Premier League to win and we are in a good situation. There's no time to cry."
"If we win the Premier League and Capital One Cup, this season is still a fantastic season for us," Mourinho added.
