"I want to see my Chelsea team sad" -- Pochettino on Arsenal draw

Chelsea manager, Mauricio Pochettino has reacted to the draw against North London rivals, Arsenal at Stamford Bridge following a 2-2 stalemate between both London clubs.

The Blues had raced into an early lead thanks to a penalty kick that was converted by new signing, Cole Palmer, with a second goal coming in the second half thanks to Mykhailo Mudryk for a 2-0 cushion lead against the Gunners.

However, things all fell apart for Chelsea as Arsenal were able to grow into the game to cancel both goals thanks to goals from Declan Rice and Leandro Trossard prior to the full time whistle.

Reacting to the result in his post match press conference, Mauricio Pochettino addressed the lapses of concentration to get over the line for his team, stating on MOTD that;

“I believe we dropped two points. It’s disappointing, but you can’t alter the game’s analysis and judgment. We were highly competitive against a strong team that was contending for the Premier League title last season.”

“We are a young team, and I think we can take pride in the way we competed. However, we’re disappointed because, after 77 minutes and conceding the first goal, I believe we were in a better position.

“We had control of the game, were playing well, and dominating.”

He acknowledged the inherent risk of conceding a goal, saying,

“But when you concede, there’s always a risk. Yes, we’re disappointed, but we must focus on the positives.

“I want to see my players upset because they lost two points. We are moving in the right direction, and it’s crucial to demonstrate to everyone that we can compete at this level.”
