Uncategorised Pochettino Harp On Discipline From Chelsea Players

Manager Mauricio Pochettino advised Chelsea players to uphold on-field discipline as they concentrate on Saturday’s FA Cup semifinal matchup against holders Manchester City.

During Monday’s 6-0 victory over Everton, there was a disagreement between Nicolas Jackson and Noni Madueke about who would take a penalty kick.

Madueke originally refused to give the ball to Cole Palmer, who subsequently scored from the spot.

“I explained my feelings and in the future it cannot happen like this,” Pochettino told reporters on Friday.

“The message was clear and now we need to move on.

” They are clever and understand the situation… in another way it’s good that a player wants to take responsibility for a penalty.

“But they need to respect discipline and the rules which are so important.

“The way they wanted to do things was in a very wrong way.”

Pochettino stated that his team may gain from City’s 120-minute Champions League match on Wednesday, which ended in a penalty shootout loss to Real Madrid.

We know very well, when you play 120 minutes in the Champions League, the effort is massive.

And the emotional thing, it’s always not easy to recover after you lose,” he said.

Of course it will be tough for them, like it will be for us. But we need to remember they have an unbelievable squad… they are showing in the last six-seven years how consistent they are playing under Pep’s philosophy.

“They are, if not the best, one of the best teams in the world in the last five, six, seven years.”
Enzo Fernandez, a midfielder for Chelsea, may be available after he resumed training on Friday.
