Pochettino’s team sit 11th in the table after 10 games and 14 points behind leaders Tottenham. The London team’s form will come as a concern to the Argentine coach, who feels they should have capitalised on their dominance against Brentford.

“We need to be more nasty in the last third. We need to be more clinical,” Pochettino told BBC Match of the Day. “It’s a very young group who need to improve in this area more than any other.”

He added at a press conference: “I think the analysis of the defeat is clear because after the first half we should score and we didn’t score. It is easy when you dominate and create chances and you don’t concede chances and the opponent doesn’t cross the halfway line. I think you should score. If you don’t score you need to blame yourself and we are going to blame ourselves because we were not nasty or clinical in front of the goal. We created chances but did not score.

“Sometimes you need some luck, you know, to score and after the game changed in the second half but I think we give the belief because we didn’t score and the second half, I think we cannot concede these types of goals. It was our mistake. That is why we lose the game.”

Chelsea’s next game is against Blackburn in the Carabao Cup.

Chelsea fans have been left in despair after a worrying statistic emerged from their shock defeat at home against Brentford.

The Blues were beaten 2-0 by the Bees at Stamford Bridge which saw them lose their fourth Premier League match of the season so far.

The Blues were beaten 2-0 by the Bees at Stamford Bridge which saw them lose their fourth Premier League match of the season so far.

It also means that Brentford have won all three of their league visits to Chelsea since they were promoted from the Championship in 2021.

However, a more damning statistic was made clear at full-time and one that Chelsea fans will be keen to forget.

Over the past seven months, Brentford have won two games at Stamford Bridge compared to the host’s one.

The Bees claimed a 2-0 victory over Chelsea at the end of April and repeated the score line on Saturday too.

Blues fans are far from pleased with their inability to beat Brentford at home as one took to X to say: “This is pathetic.”

“Finish the season now!” added a second, who is clearly frustrated with their shortcomings so far.

A third, who seems to be fed up of the poor performances, simply said: “Delete the club.”

“Demolish Stamford Bridge I’m not even joking,” added a fourth as Chelsea’s struggles continue.

The Blues dominated in the first half, with Cole Palmer continuing to impress in the attack and Noni Madueke hitting the crossbar.

However, the story of Chelsea’s past few seasons was repeated as Brentford punished them for not taking their chances.

Ethan Pinnock made the most of a lack of concentration to head in at the far post just before the hour mark.

Bryan Mbeumo made it 2-0 in stoppage time as he found the back of the net that was left vacant by Robert Sanchez after he went up for a corner, with Chelsea now down in 11th.
