Chelsea manager Pochettino Questions squad's maturity after draw with Sheffield United

Posted : 08 April 2024

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino expressed concerns about his team's maturity and ability to cope with the demanding schedule of matches every three days in the Premier League, following their 2-2 draw against Sheffield United. Despite taking the lead through Thiago Silva's goal, Chelsea were unable to secure the win as Sheffield United fought back, resulting in another dropped points for Pochettino's side.


Noni Madueke briefly restored Chelsea's lead in the second half, but a late equalizer from Sheffield United's Ollie McBurnie denied Chelsea the victory. Pochettino highlighted the toll that the packed fixture list has taken on his squad, pointing out their struggles to consistently perform at their best in such tightly scheduled matches.


Acknowledging the need for player protection amidst the demanding schedule, Pochettino explained his decision to substitute top scorer Cole Palmer as a precautionary measure. Looking ahead, Chelsea faces Everton in the league before a crucial FA Cup semifinal clash against Manchester City on April 20, highlighting the importance of managing the squad's fitness and readiness for upcoming fixtures.
