Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has rejected claims that there is a player revolt at the club.
Earlier on Tuesday, Blues midfielder Cesc Fabregas denied reports that he was organising a “mini-revolt” at the Premier League champions.
Chelsea are 15th in the table, having lost six of their first 11 league matches this season.
“It’s a very sad accusation because you are accusing a player, or more than one player, of dishonesty,” said Mourinho.
Speaking at a news conference, he added: “It is a question for the players. If I accuse you to be a dishonest journalist, you would be very upset and probably would take legal action.”
