Pochettino: “We were better than Liverpool, better than West Ham. In five games, I think we deserved to win”


Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has expressed his satisfaction with the team’s progress so far this season, despite only picking up seven points from their first five games.

Speaking to the media after the team’s 0-0 draw with West Ham, Pochettino said: “We’re happy in the process and the way that the team is showing the way we are wanting to play.”

“We were better than Liverpool, better than West Ham. In five games, I think we deserved to win,” he added.

Pochettino’s comments come after Chelsea have drawn three of their last four games, including a frustrating goalless draw against West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Despite the lack of wins, Pochettino has been encouraged by the team’s performances, particularly in their recent games against Liverpool and West Ham.

“We’re creating a lot of chances and we’re controlling possession in games,” Pochettino said. “We just need to be more clinical in front of goal.”

Pochettino also praised the team’s spirit and resilience, saying that they are “mentally strong” and that they will continue to work hard to improve.

“We’re still under construction, but I’m very happy with the progress we’re making,” Pochettino said. “I’m confident that we will start to win games more consistently very soon.”


Pochettino’s comments are a sign of his confidence in the team, despite their recent struggles. He believes that Chelsea are playing the right way and that they are creating enough chances to win games.

However, it is clear that Chelsea need to improve their conversion rate in front of goal. They have created more chances than any other team in the Premier League this season, but they have only scored six goals in their first five games.

If Chelsea can improve their finishing, they will be a very dangerous team. They have a lot of talented players in their squad and Pochettino is building a team that is capable of challenging for major trophies.
