Chelsea squad goalkeepers - Đorđe Petrović

Pochettino impressed by Djordje Petrovic’s stellar performances at Chelsea

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino is praising goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic, as sources say he has been extremely pleased by the player’s recent performances.

Petrovic, who was originally believed to be Robert Sanchez’s backup, took advantage of the opportunity to shine after moving into the spotlight following Sanchez’s injury early in the season.

Petrovic has been a regular starter for Chelsea since December, showing outstanding technique and perseverance in the face of difficult opponents.

His outstanding performances between the posts have caught the interest of both fans and analysts, with many now pushing for him to keep his job even once Sanchez returns to full fitness.

Pochettino’s admiration for Petrovic seems to be growing by the day, with sources suggesting that the Chelsea boss has become a fervent admirer of the 24-year-old goalkeeper.

Despite Sanchez’s return to training, there’s no guarantee that he will immediately reclaim his position in the starting lineup, especially given Petrovic’s impressive form.

The timing couldn’t be more perfect for Petrovic, with Chelsea gearing up for a crucial clash against Liverpool in the EFL Cup final.

Having already delivered a stellar performPance against Jurgen Klopp’s side in the past, Petrovic appears to be a strong contender to start in what could potentially be Chelsea’s most significant game of the season.

As anticipation builds for the upcoming final, all eyes will be on Pochettino’s selection, with Petrovic’s rise from understudy to standout performer adding an intriguing subplot to Chelsea’s quest for silverware.
