Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has warned it is important not to put too much pressure on Armando Broja to solve Chelsea’s goalscoring problems.

“It’s the same situation we can maybe talk about with many different players,” Pochettino said.

“Broja arrives and maybe he will be involved at the weekend but it is after nine months that he has not been competing. We cannot put the responsibility on him.

“Always the responsibility must be on the team, the collective effort. It’s not only the offensive players who need to score, all the players involved in the team need to try to score. We cannot expect that Broja arrives and, if he has the possibility to play, he is going to score with every single touch.

“He needs time also to feel the competition and start to perform in the way that we expect that he can perform.”
