BREAKING NEWS:“He can earn you two goals if you start him” – Chelsea legend say Pochettino must start 25-year-old in Chelsea’s next game against Brentford

Pochettino must start 25-year-old in Chelsea’s next game despite what happened against Arsenal – opinion

Despite only picking up a point in the London derby against Arsenal at the weekend, Mauricio Pochettino will have been extremely pleased with what he saw from his Chelsea side.

Goals from Cole Palmer and Mykhailo Mudryk looked as if they were going to be enough to end the Gunners’ unbeaten run, but they were pegged back late and had to settle for a 2-2 draw.

The hosts were in complete control until the final quarter of an hour, after Declan Rice’s long-range goal brought them back into the game.

The chance presented itself to the England international after a poor pass from Chelsea goalkeeper Robert Sanchez.

The Spaniard’s passing has looked shaky at times during his career in West London, which has been the real limitation of his game.

Pochettino must start Sanchez
Pochettino was quick to leap to the defence of his number one, although the moment had been a tough pill to swallow for those inside Stamford Bridge.

He has been in goal for every game since he joined the club, leaving little opportunity for Djordje Petrovic to show what he can do for the first team.

Despite calls for the former MLS star to be handed his debut at the weekend against Brentford, the manager should stick to his guns and start Sanchez.

Shot stopping has actually been a big strength of the 25-year-old’s since he joined the club, which was shown after he won the ‘Save of the Month’ award for his stop against Aston Villa in September.

He was also statistically in the best performing team of the month in September too, suggesting that his torrid time against Arsenal was a blip in what has otherwise been a positive start to life at Stamford Bridge.
