Chelsea’s unwanted record

After shipping four to Wolves, it was revealed that Chelsea have conceded 4+ goals in consecutive league games for a second time under Mauricio Pochettino - something that had not happened since December 1989 prior to his arrival.

On the Wolves game, the Argentine said post-match: “We didn’t start badly, the game. The way we conceded the first goal; the team suffered. We tried to build the momentum and trust with the way we play.

“A difficult moment to manage after that. The energy dropped and then it was really difficult moment to manage. We concede the second goal, two own goals in the first-half.”

When asked if his Chelsea players are good enough, Pochettino added: “I think we are all not good enough. At the moment this is the reality. Myself, also. What we are showing today is we are not good enough.

“We didn’t manage the situation properly. No-one can be safe, no? I don’t want to come here and say I’m the best. At the moment, we are not matching the history of the club, that is true. We need to accept and be critical. We will not give up.”
