Mauricio Pochettino hails Chelsea's home form after beating Newcastle

Pochettino has stated that he was disappointed with the two strikes that Chelsea conceded

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that his players deserve credit for the improvements that have been made at Stamford Bridge this season.

The West London club overcame Newcastle United on Monday to keep their hopes alive in the Premier League. Chelsea were able to come through by a 3-2 scoreline as Nicolas Jackson, Cole Palmer and Mykhaylo Mudryk found their names on the scoresheet.

However, Pochettino has stated that he was disappointed with the two strikes that Chelsea conceded. While talking to Match of the Day, Pochettino said: “Football, sometimes you enjoy and sometimes you suffer. We played a very good team with amazing players, it was really tough. We made the victory, but we keep looking forward and moving forward – the most important is the three points.

The Argentine added: “It is important for offensive players to feel the confidence and we know we can win games scoring goals, but a little disappointed the way we conceded with two mistakes that should never happen, but that is how we become more mature – we need to keep pushing.”

“I cannot do anything of the frustration of last season, last season was a nightmare to win a game here [Stamford Bridge] now we are winning games and we are solid.

“We are building something different and we need to accept it. Today the fans were good, we need to keep moving and being strong.”

Chelsea will now face Leicester City in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Sunday afternoon. They have a break for a week.
