Chelsea Mudryk Urges Chelsea Players, Supporters To Have Faith In Pochettino

After Chelsea defeated Newcastle to go to the Carabao Cup semi-finals, Mykhailo Mudryk, one of Chelsea’s top scorers, is adamant that both the players and the supporters must have faith in Mauricio Pochettino’s methods.

The game went to penalties as the Ukraine international took advantage of a careless move made by Kieran Trippier in the closing moments at Stamford Bridge.

The 22-year-old Mudryk encouraged his teammates to think that everything is possible in the competition after he was one of the players to step up and score from the spot.

He said: “Obviously it means a lot. Sometimes things happen when you trust in each other and believe until the end. All is possible.

“Sometimes when the game is tough you need to keep pushing and believe until the last second because it’s football and everything can happen.

“Our gaffer said we’re going to try to win this title before this game. After this game our plans haven’t changed.

“We’re looking forward. We will try to win the title.

“In my humble opinion we are in the right direction. We have to trust the process, our gaffer and each other.

“We have a really strong team. Sometimes to win something big, we need time.”

With Robert Sanchez sidelined due to injury, Djordje Petrovic was picked in goal for Chelsea.

The Serbian made a fantastic stop to deny Matt Ritchie and seal the victory.

The 24-year-old said: “Very tough game. We conceded an unlucky goal and we trust in ourselves and our goal.

“We had the patience. I want to congratulate the team and everyone deserves it.

“I don’t feel pressure because they need to score and I can be the hero. I just did my job. I lost twice in a shootout here in England before.”

The Blues’ focus will first be on Sunday’s Premier League match at Wolves before moving on to the semi-finals, where they will play either West Ham, Liverpool, Middlesbrough, or Fulham.
