Chelsea were extremely poor at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as they suffered a heavy 4-2 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers with Mauricio Pochettino facing sack calls.
Pressure is mounting on Mauricio Pochettino after Chelsea’s heavy defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend. The Blues lost 4-2 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday and were booed at full-time by sections of the fan base as they dropped into the bottom half of the Premier League table.
“I think we are all not good enough,” Pochettino said after the game. “At the moment, that is the reality. Myself, also, to be the first responsible for this situation.
“What we were showing today, that we are not good enough. I agree with you 100%. We didn’t manage the situation properly and no-one can be safe. I don’t want to come here and say I am the best. We are all responsible.
“Even the players. The players need to take some responsibility like I am taking the responsibility, also. I agree with you, at the moment, we are not matching the history of the club. That is true, we have to accept and we need to be critical and not give up. We need to keep working to try and change, maybe take a decision, try to find things in a different way.”
The defeat to Wolves was Chelsea’s 10th in the league this season and leaves them in 11th position. For a club of Chelsea’s stature it is simply not good enough and Todd Boehly may be forced to act should Pochettino not get improved performances out of his players.
