Mauricio Pochettino has provided his thoughts on how Chelsea played against Fulham on Saturday.

The Blues moved to eighth on the Premier League table with a 1-0 win against Marco Silva’s men at Stamford Bridge.

Cole Palmer scored the game’s only goal after stepping up to beat Bernd Leno from the penalty spot.

Chelsea had a lot of control over the game, particularly in the closing stages of the first half, and the opening 30 minutes of the second, and Pochettino thinks another goal would have helped the team feel more comfortable.

“We started the second half really good,” the Argentine told a press conference after Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Fulham.

“I think we played really good football for 30 minutes and should score another goal or one or two and kill the game.

“When the game is open like this and you don’t kill the game, always in the last minutes we concede a few actions, set pieces and wide free kicks and they have good potential in these situations.

“We defended well and I think it was good for us to suffer a bit at the end. I think this type of game will make us grow and build confidence in the way we are working.”
