Pochettino apologies for ‘nervous’ and ‘stressed’ Chelsea collapse After BRUTAL Defeat

Mauricio Pochettino expressed regret to Chelsea fans for the team’s failure to uphold the club’s prestigious legacy following a disappointing 4-2 defeat against Wolves, which pushed them into the lower half of the Premier League standings. Pochettino attributed the recent poor performances, including a 4-1 loss to Liverpool, to the pressure of his debut season at Stamford Bridge affecting his youthful squad.


Despite Cole Palmer’s early goal for Chelsea, Wolves, led by Matheus Cunha’s hat-trick and an own goal by Axel Disasi, staged a remarkable comeback, sealing their first victory at Stamford Bridge since 1979. Pochettino acknowledged the team’s struggle to handle pressure, apologizing to the fans and acknowledging their disappointment.


Despite significant investment in new players, Chelsea’s performance has declined since the departure of Thomas Tuchel, evident in the fan backlash at full-time. Pochettino emphasized the need to reset ahead of the FA Cup replay against Aston Villa, admitting the challenge of matching the club’s historical standards amid the ongoing transition.


While Wolves celebrated their victory, manager Gary O’Neil praised the team’s resilience despite recent setbacks, highlighting their impressive 32 points in the season so far. O’Neil emphasized the team’s determination to push forward despite setbacks, reflecting on their ability to bounce back from adversity.
