Chelsea keen to step up their talks with Gallagher over new contract

Mauricio Pochettino demands urgent squad upgrades after Everton defeat

Mauricio Pochettino’s message to the Chelsea board was emphatic in the aftermath of Chelsea’s disappointing 2-0 loss to Everton. The Argentine strategist, who took over earlier this season, calls for decisive action during the January transfer window.

Pochettino told the BBC: “Football is about scoring goals and we were not clinical in front of goal.

“I’m really, really disappointed. We didn’t get the point we deserved. I think we were better but we didn’t get what we wanted.

“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 to improve in the next transfer market.”

Chelsea’s defeat at Goodison Park was their third in four games, and Pochettino, known for his astute management abilities, sees a pressing need for squad improvement.

Chelsea dominated possession and created chances in the first half, but their inability to convert those chances into goals proved costly.

Pochettino, who supervised a massive £400 million shopping over in his first transfer window, pointed out that the team’s continuous lack of ruthlessness in front of goal demands additional reinforcements.

The defeat has dropped Chelsea to 12th place in the Premier League table, a far cry from the lofty expectations connected with the reigning champions.

Following a recent loss to Manchester United, Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino made significant changes to the starting lineup, but the team’s performance fell short of expectations.

Chelsea’s board faces a critical juncture in fixing the team’s flaws and regenerating their championship defense work as Pochettino focuses the spotlight onto the January transfer market.
