“Remains a lack of” – Pochettino ‘places high value on’ the one thing Chelsea owners have not provided

Everyone will have an opinion right now on what is going wrong at Chelsea in the last season and again so far this season, at least for the first six games.

Things can change fast in football but right now things are very gloomy and Chelsea are not in a good situation.

It’s far from ideal for new boss Mauricio Pochettino, who has picked up just five points in his first six games in charge at the club.

And the debates are now rife as to what the issues are. For me, one of the main problems is the fact that Chelsea only signed young this summer and should have looked to bring in two or three more experienced and proven players to balance out the squad.

This is also something that Pochettino places high value on according to journalist Ben Jacobs writing in his latest exclusive and extensive Chelsea column for SPTC today.

He said: “There remains a lack of leadership and arguably proven Premier League quality, something Pochettino places high value on.

“It’s a catch-22. You either buy for the future and hope the young players hit the ground running when thrown in at the deep end. Or you find older, shorter-term fixes who can make more of an instant impact. But given Chelsea haven’t been short of money in the past three windows it’s perhaps a bit of a surprise they have predominantly bought for the long term. That’s why, for example, the new signings this summer had an average age of 20.5.”

  1. The problem of Chelsea FC is the stubbornness of pochi . Why he can’t drop Gallagher and sterling and place them to bench . Play Lesley alongside Caceido Enzo . Then mudryk Palmer Broja next game. If he play 3 at the back . He can use maatsen to replace gusto . Chilwell back to wingback . Caceido Enzo in midfield. In attack mudryk Palmer Broja. Or 4 at the back play Desasi as RB . Chilwell LB . Lesley caceido Enzo midfield then mudryk Palmer Broja attack . Give mudryk regular playing time to start and finish the game to polish his game and get experience and confidence in his game . Or pochi can play maatsen Caceido Enzo in midfield. He has to try and gamble not to precaution. They have to practice 10 men against opposition . If he keep playing Gallagher and sterling , I don’t see them get good results . He has to reshuffle his team and gamble on new signing . Noni is another prone to injury player . Try to play mudryk upfront .
