Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed what he told the players before Cole Palmer’s late winner in the 4-3 victory over Manchester United.

After Palmer scored a late penalty to make it 3-3, Pochettino has revealed he told the players they had two minutes to find the winner.

“It was really unfair (to be losing),” said Mauricio Pochettino. “Why were we losing the game. Football is like this. But we always kept believing.

“We were saying to the players ‘two minutes, two minutes’. (At 2-2) we believed we could score the winning goal.

“It was a must-win game if we wanted to reduce the gap above us. It was so, so important.”
