Angry Chelsea Manager Pochettino Speaks After His Side’s 2 – 2 Draw With Arsenal

Chelsea boss, Mauricio Pochettino, has bemoaned his side’s failure to defeat Arsenal on Saturday.

The Blues threw away a two-goal advantage with 13 minutes left to draw 2-2 with the Gunners.

Cole Palmer and Mykhailo Mudryk gave Pochettino’s men the lead, but goals from Declan Rice and Leandro Trossard ensured Mikel Arteta’s men earned a point.

Pochettino, speaking to MOTD, said:

“I think we lost two points. We are disappointed but you can not change the analysis and the judgement of the game. We were very competitive against a very good team fighting for the Premier League last season.

“We are a young team and I think the way we competed is a lot to be proud but we’re disappointed because after 77 minutes when we conceded the first goal I think we were better. The game was under control and we were playing well and dominating the game.

“But when you concede there is a risk. Yes, we’re disappointed but we have to take positive things. I wan to see my players sad because they lost two points. We are in a good direction. It’s important we show the people we can compete at this level.”
