Chelsea manager Pochettino makes claims regarding Arsenal match

Mauricio Pochettino of Chelsea has offered a reaction to Robert Sanchez’s mistake in the match against Arsenal. This comes amid rumors that Chelsea is contemplating the acquisition of a new goalkeeper during the January transfer window. The Blues previously allowed Kepa Arrizabalaga to go on loan to Real Madrid in the summer. And Edouard Mendy permanently departed the club.

Robert Sanchez was initially recruited to contend with Kepa for the team’s No. 1 goalkeeper position. However, with Kepa’s departure to Madrid, Sanchez has now established himself as Chelsea primary choice in the goalkeeping role. The 25-year-old has recorded three clean sheets in nine Premier League appearances this season. Nevertheless, there is ongoing speculation that Chelsea may explore the possibility of signing a world-class goalkeeper in the upcoming January transfer window.

Pochettino is to have greater influence over the club’s transfer strategy moving forward. Particularly following the substantial £350 million summer spending spree. In response to inquiries about Chelsea intentions for the January transfer window, Pochettino commented, “Football is highly dynamic.”

What did Chelsea manager Pochettino say?

Pochettino said:

“Maybe we are thinking in a different way two weeks ago or three weeks ago. Ready and working with the sporting directors and owners to try to be ready.”

“The moment the transfer window is open, we can see if the team needs, if the squad needs to add some players in the position we are talking, an offensive position,” the Chelsea boss added. Whilst there was no mention about a new goalkeeper, the Blues are clearly preparing to add a few new players to the squad if the opportunity presents itself in January.”

Before the Brentford match on Saturday afternoon, Pochettino was questioned regarding Sanchez’s error against Arsenal and his overall performance this season. In response, the Blues manager told reporters: “We are observing a high number of mistakes in various leagues and different countries.”

Individual errors played a pivotal role in Chelsea surrendering a 2-0 lead against Arsenal. With both Sanchez and Malo Gusto being accountable for the Gunners’ goals. Pochettino will be optimistic that, as time progresses, these mistakes will diminish within his squad, ultimately leading to improved results.
