Pochettino on Chelsea’s loss to Everton

On what went wrong vs Everton, Mauricio Pochettino had this to say:

“We didn’t score,” he stated. “You dominate the game, I think we were the better side but if you don’t score goals it is difficult to win games. We didn’t receive enough in the last third. So far it has looked like we had progress in this area but today we showed lack of productivity in the last third.

“We have too many chances, too many approaches in the last third but then if you have not received enough and showed you can compete with quality there it is difficult to win the game. Yes, lack of concentration we concede one goals but we should score before.”

Pochettino was then asked about wanting January signings and said: “I think it’s about to improve. We were talking after nearly four or five months, or 16 games, it’s about to assess.

“We were not able today with all of the chances we had. We need to score if we want to win the game and we want to be in a different position in the table. It is not only to play, the team played well, dominated the game against a very difficult team like Everton.

“When you assess Everton, we deserve full credit because I think we were much better than them but in the end you need to score because if not, you build the confidence of the opponent and it is impossible to go 96 minutes without making a mistake.”
