The Portuguese tactician vows to take full advantage of the upcoming transfer window and bring in the missing piece to his puzzle.

"Against the teams that are more defensive, more aggressive, more worried about trying to keep a clean sheet than really to play, we keep saying the same," the former Real Madrid boss told Chelsea TV.

"We have good players, but we don't have the kind of striker able to, in a short space, to make an action, to score a goal, to open the gate."

"In these kind of matches you just need to open the gate. When you open the gate, the gate is open and you go on to win much more. We weren't able to do that."

"We have to try to win as a team, to improve as a team, but also add the attacking player with that killer instinct and the number of goals that push teams to different levels."
