Latest Chelsea manager odds revealed as Mauricio Pochettino hits out following Burnley draw


Chelsea faced off with Burnley in a Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon in a tie they were expected to win with ease.

However, despite the Clarets going down to 10 men after 40 minutes and Chelsea taking the lead four minutes later, the west Londoners were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw. The Blues will be looking to bounce back on Thursday when they host Manchester United as 19/20 favourites with bet365.

Mauricio Pochettino hits out after Chelsea 2-2 Burnley

The result vs Burnley leaves Chelsea 11th in the Premier League table and with no hope of securing Champions League football for next season.

On his side’s result over the weekend, Mauricio Pochettino had this to say: “Very disappointed in the way that in the second-half we managed or deal with the situation. We are a team that, when we play in possession and play forward, we are able to create too many chances, maybe not to score all the chances we created. We need to improve our percentage in the game.

“After today, we didn’t show the capacity, the energy, the anger. Not the minimum to compete in the Premier League. In the defensive phase we concede too much. That is why I am so upset and disappointed. It’s more here [in your heart] and here [in your head] than in your legs to be strong like a group, to be strong like a team. That is sometimes the circumstance for different reasons we are so slow evolving in this area.

“That is the key today. It’s not to find excuses. The team played well, yes, we have energy, yes, we go forward, yes, but afterwards when we don’t have the ball we don’t have the same energy.”

The draw with Burnley is also unlikely to help Mauricio Pochettino keep his job beyond the summer. There has already been speculation he will be sacked at the end of 2023/24, with a number of big names tipped to take his position.
