No. It’s a new project, it’s a new team. Too many circumstances. It’s tough to explajn. Too many problems and circumstances for the season. It’s not easy to build something new. Reality now, we are thinking is different. It’s about to take decisions, being strong in how we assess the season and to improve in the second part of the season, be more competitive and to get the results a club like Chelsea deserves.

I think it’s one thing, before we talk about performance or system or everything, little by little to change the menatlity, to fight expectation and reality. Chelsea expectation is massive, to win the Premier League and after is the reality. The team is still fighting different circumstances. Sometimes it’s good, reality check, we need to fight, not because we are Chelsea we are going to win, not because we are Chelsea we play well, that is our reality. If we want to go up, it’s not about just playing well, it’s about being tough with ourselves. we are going to push the player.

When the transfer window opens, we will see what we can do. I will not say if I ask for more player or less player but it’s to see if the perception matches the reality. Maybe we need to improve our reality.

It is everything, it’s not easy to say that is the problem. There are 11 players on the pitch that need to perform. The problem is why we arrive in this situation, it is difficult to explain. We know why we are dealing with this. Newcastle lose 3-0 and Everton was much better and credit for Everton but today I think we were better than Everton and we feel disappointed and frustrated.

Feel disappointed. After five months, we need to check, maybe we need to do something, some movement that is a thing to analyse with the sporting director and to improve in the second part of the season. It is not only to dominate and play well but we cannot show this lack of concentration. We were punished too much today, too many positive things, I know it is difficult to talk about positive things in the position.

He suffered a problem against Manchester United inhis knee and he felt something in the second half. Hope it is not a big issue like Marc Cucurella, twisted his ankle. Hope we can recover as soon as possible. These type of circumstances we are dealing with from the beginning and it is too much if we want to progress.

That is another thing I don;t like to talk too much. For us is an important player, one of the best footballers in the world. Really disappointed. This type of circumstances has to change because Gusto is still recovering.

The team was good even when Reece was out but disappointed. In the end when you believe you can build something with a player that should be really important for us.

I think it’s about to improve. We were talking after nearly 4 or 5 months, it’s about to assess. We need to score if we want to win the game. The team played well, dominate the game against a very difficult team like Everton. We deserve full credit because we were better than them but we need to score.

We didn’t score. If you don’t score goals it is difficult to win games. Today we showed lack of productivity in the last third. Too many approaches.

Lack of concentration we concede one goals but we should score before.

Pochettino to Match of the Day
This was a game to play and to win. It’s a problem we need to check. We need to analyse the reality. We need to talk and to try and improve in the next transfer market.
