Mauricio Pochettino on brink of Chelsea axe as he speaks out after Sheff Utd shambles

Veteran defender Thiago Silva gave the visitors the lead after returning to the Chelsea team, before Jayden Bogle equalised. Cole Palmer then set up Noni Madueke before their talisman was substituted off, though Pochettino confirmed not through injury, but in the last few moments McBurnie equalised.

Pochettino slammed his side’s inability to keep clean sheets and suggested that they were not suited to the physical affair that comes with playing against opposition towards the bottom of the table.

“The team is not showing in the last few months the capacity to be solid,” he added. “We score goals but we are conceding and that is why they punish us.

“For different reasons, we struggle to compete in these types of games. We score, we were better, we were under control but in the situation like this we concede from nowhere. That is about to be more competitive. Yes, it’s about the combination. It’s to idenfity the profile. We are learning how the players need to learn from the coaching staff.”
