‘I’m going to put an end to their winning streak. Mauricio Pochettino, manager of Chelsea, has issued a stern Premier League warning to Arteta ahead of their CLASH.
Mauricio Pochettino believes Cole Palmer has given Chelsea the edge they need before of their match against Arsenal. When he has started a game for Chelsea, the Manchester City deadline-day signing has a perfect record, with victories over Brighton, Fulham, and Burnley.
The 21-year-old netted his first goal for the Blues from the penalty spot against the Clarets, closing off a fantastic start to his career at Stamford Bridge, where he has also picked up two assists.
Pochettino underlined Palmer’s freedom despite his position on the right, citing his unpredictable personality as a key weapon in Chelsea’s onslaught.
Raheem Sterling was used on the left flank against Burnley, where he excelled, assisting on all four Blues goals. Pochettino appears to be up against a lot of competition on the wings right now, especially with Mykhailo Mudryk’s improved form.
“In the midfield area, they start to connect and get a good link,” Pochettino said, according to the Chelsea website. Cole Palmer is another talented athlete that gets along well with his teammates. We’re giving him the right-side starting slot, but we’re also giving him the chance to play between the lines because he’s ready to read what the team needs and be unpredictable since football is an unpredictable game, and he has the potential to do so.”
While the international break is in full gear and Pochettino is dealing with a smaller team than he would prefer, Arsenal is only nine days away. Chelsea’s head coach is looking forward to the game, which he believes will allow him to assess the state of his squad.
“We’re going to play against a very good team, a team that has built a very good squad and a very good coach in the last few years,” he said. Mikel is a close friend of mine, and they are doing a fantastic job.
It is a team that is now ready to fight for big things, so competing against them is a fascinating task. We’re in a different process, at a different point in time, but I believe it’s critical to see how our boys compete against a more experienced club.”
