Pochettino credits Sterling, Palmer for Chelsea win over Burnley

Mauricio Pochettino has credited Raheem Sterling and Cole Palmer specially as trash Burnley 4-1 one to record first bact-to-back victories in the Premier League.

Chelsea fought back from a goal down after conceding early in the first half. Efforts from Cole Palmer, Raheem Sterling, Nicolas Jackson and an own goal helped the Blues get past their opponents.

Pochettino in a post match interview said;

“I’m so pleased because I think the players deserved the victory, we haven’t got what we deserved from the beginning of the season. But I think today was a solid performance. We conceded one goal and that it was tough to break down Burnley’s structure. In the second half we dominated and fully deserved the result.”

“It’s work and of course confidence. We are a young team, too many new players on the team so you have to build the confidence and the structure of the team. We are playing well but we need to improve and be more confident in front of goal. I am happy and at the moment we are building our confidence and three victories in the last three games is important for this young group.

On Sterling’s performance, he said:

“I am so pleased because I think he needs to feel the net and he is a player with experience that can provide a very good thing for the team. He created a penalty and then he scored and he was involved for the first goal, the own goal. He’s an experienced player and he needs to provide many things to the team.”

On Palmer, he added:

“He is a very talented player and he has the quality and he surprised me when I arrived because it was the day before the transfer window closed. the way the he reads the situations and what the team needs in every situation, he can be the player who can link with his team-mates. Still very very young but with great personality and he has the talent and the quality which we saw today.”
