Mauricio Pochettino breaks silence as he gives damning assessment of his Chelsea side after Wolves defeat

Mauricio Pochettino admitted ‘no one can be safe’ from criticism after Chelsea’s humiliating defeat to Wolves piled pressure on the Blues boss.

Despite taking the lead early on through Cole Palmer, Chelsea fell to a 4-2 defeat at home on Sunday afternoon with Matheus Cunha scoring a hat-trick for Gary O’Neil’s side.

After a dismal 4-1 defeat away to Liverpool midweek, Pochettino’s side have now shipped eight goals in their last two games with Chelsea fans booing their team off at half-time then again at the end of the match.

Recording signing Moises Caicedo endured particularly poor game with the entire team sluggish and inspiring on another miserable afternoon for the Londoners.

‘I think we are all not good enough,’ Pochettino said in his post-match press conference.

‘At the moment this is the reality. Myself, also. I am responsible for this situation. What we are showing today is we are not good enough.

‘We didn’t manage the situation properly. Of course, no-one can be safe, no? I don’t want to come here and say I’m the best and the players are the worst.

‘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.

‘We have to move on and try find the solution.’

The mounting discontent from the home support was clear throughout the game with fans also singing the name of former owner Roman Abramovich and jeering Raheem Sterling when he was replaced after 72 minutes.

Defeat sees Chelsea drop down to 11th with Wolves leapfrogging their opponents in the table with the deserved away win.

‘The perception is Chelsea should be in a different position but for different circumstances, we are not. One is maybe because we’re not good enough,’ Pochettino said.

‘To understand the fans is really important. I feel sorry.

‘We are disappointed like them but until the end we need to fight together. During the game we need to work together to get a good result.’
