CHELSEA Pochettino ask to make a significant change as “absolutely useless” Chelsea star slammed.
After suffering a dispiriting 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest and hearing their own supporters jeer them at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea has received harsh criticism.
Mykhaylo Mudryk, a star for Chelsea, has been called “absolutely useless,” and manager Mauricio Pochettino’s strategies have also come under scrutiny after the Blues’ 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest.
Since Roman Abramovich’s club was purchased last year by a group led by Todd Boehly, Chelsea has spent an additional £1 billion. Despite their significant spending, Chelsea had their worst-ever Premier League season last year, finishing 12th, and things have not improved much under new manager Pochettino.
The Blues have only defeated newly promoted Luton Town once in four league games, and they have now lost two contests in which they had the majority of the possession.
In spite of having 76% of the ball and 17 shots against 10-man West Ham, Chelsea was defeated 3-1.
Against Forest, they had 77% of the ball and 21 shots.
As well as criticizing Pochettino’s strategy, Mudryk’s performance as a substitute, and Chelsea’s transfer activity, former Premier League striker Gabriel Agbonlahor questioned why he did not start with a back four against Forest.
Agbonlahor said on talkSPORT, “What I don’t understand with Chelsea is that they had 21 shots and guess how many were on target?
“They’re getting into the positions, but they just don’t have the quality, and it seems to be a theme now.
“If you check social media, you’ll see that Chelsea signs players but still loses games.
They spent $1 billion. Why didn’t Chelsea buy a star with a quarter of that money?
“Make Paris Saint-Germain a Mbappe offer they can’t refuse, go ahead.
There you are, Daniel Levy, Harry Kane said.
Everything you want. You get two superstars for £150 million if you buy Harry Kane.
“Today, there were three center halves or five at the back. Gallagher, who doesn’t score goals, is there, and the pace is slow.
Caicedo made two errors there, and now they’re switching formations once more.
Why not begin with a back four?
“With no offense meant to Nottingham Forest, you should be playing four at the back against them. Pochettino may believe he has time, but if you keep losing, see if the Chelsea supporters agree.
