After finishing in a dismal 12th place in the Premier League the previous season, Chelsea hired Mauricio Pochettino as their new head coach this summer with the hopes of turning things around.
Even though they have only won one of their first six Premier League games this season, Chelsea’s nightmare shows no signs of ending.
Saturday at Stamford Bridge, Villa defeated the Blues 1-0 despite another terrible performance from Chelsea. Before Ollie Watkins’ game-winning goal, Malo Gusto was ejected from the game.
Pochettino was confronted during the game about Jackson, a summer signing who had failed to score again and had received his fifth caution of the year, leading to his suspension for Chelsea’s upcoming meeting.
There has been a lot of pressure on Jackson, 22, since he joined the Blues from Villarreal in a £30 million move. This is due to Chelsea’s goal-scoring difficulties and his relatively low goal total.
Pochettino’s team fell to Villa, and Jackson was mentioned after the game. We were speaking, and he said, “We need to mature as a team.”
In the Premier League, young player Nico is adapting well. Young players should learn the game even if they don’t win.
As a result, we feel dissatisfied. There are far too many cases like this one.
Pochettino would not blame Gusto for Chelsea’s loss, despite the fact that he was fired.
When asked if he thought a tackle from Gusto was required, Pochettino said, “It is our responsibility.”
Events that have an impact on the game happen occasionally in football, so I won’t hold Malo Gusto accountable for anything.
On Wednesday, Chelsea will play host to Brighton in the Carabao Cup.
