Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has pleaded for his team to be given some time, stating that the team is young and needs time to get themselves together.

The Blues have had a rough start to the 2023/2024 Premier League season, sitting on the 14th spot of the League table.

The Stamford Bridge club have recorded three losses, two draws and a win in six games this season.

Speaking in a recent press conference, Pochettino said: “We are a young team that is in process needing to learn altogether. It is difficult to talk about positives because when you lose it is difficult.

“We need to talk about positive things, we need to keep the positives in. There’s no doubt with time the team is going to perform. Of course I cannot hide the situation, it’s a situation that disappoints all of the fans, the club, us and the players.

“[We need to] give trust and then confidence. We have the squad that we have. We cannot change anything.

“We try to build the confidence and to give them all of the support that they need because they need to perform on the pitch.”
