Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed he has made a decision on who will start in goal for Chelsea in Saturday’s Premier League game against Brentford.

Pochettino’s choice for the Brentford game will signal who will be the team’s first choice goalkeeper.

Robert Sanchez has been out since December, and only just made his comeback from injury in Wednesday night’s 3-2 FA Cup fifth round win over Leeds United.

Robert Sanchez who signed from Brighton last summer, started the season as the club’s new No.1 following the departure of Kepa Arrizabalaga to Real Madrid.

Sanchez didn’t entirely convince, as he was mistake prone. He suffered an injury during a defeat at Everton in December, which handed Djordje Petrovic a chance to show his worth.

The 24-year-old Serbian has proven to be a quality goalkeeper, and has gotten the approval of Chelsea fans.

With former number one, Robert Sanchez now back, Mauricio Pochettino has a choice to make on his first choice goalkeeper.

Asked who would start against the Bees on Saturday, Pochettino said: “I don’t know if to tell or not to tell [you]. They know already. Always is tough when you only need to pick 11.”
