Get his defenders to do their jobs
So solid last season, Chelsea's defence is shaky - only three teams in the league have conceded more (Norwich City, Bournemouth and Newcastle). Zouma needs more game time, Rahman needs less, and Azpilicueta needs a settled position.
The Brazilian was involved in 14 league goals last term and boasted a pass success rate over 80%. Can Chelsea, a team struggling going forward, continue to leave such a player on the bench?
Abandon siege mentality tactics
An occasionally effective tactic, but Mourinho has picked the wrong targets. Wenger refuses to bite, the Eva Carneiro row sullied his popularity, while the FA are no longer interested in his complaints and appear to be determined to make an example of him.
Give Eden Hazard an arm round the shoulder
It worked for De Bruyne at Wolfsburg and now Manchester City: does Hazard need some loving, too? Instagram 'misunderstandings' or not, Chelsea cannot afford to lose the Belgian.
Pester Roman Abramovich for more transfer funds
Bournemouth would be disappointed with a transfer window that culminated in Papy Djilobodji and Michael Hector, let alone the Premier League champions. Chelsea require more investment.
