The 51-year-old coach has the enviable record of never losing a home match to the Gunners since his time at Southampton and Tottenham. Pochettino’s team now face an even stronger Arsenal side who are unbeaten and have a chance to top the Premier League rankings for at least the next 48 hours.
Anyway, Coach Pochettino was still very calm before the match. He said: “This match was easier to prepare for, the players were excited, the fans were passionate. No one would have predicted we would win 3-0 tomorrow and I’m excited to play against a team like Arsenal.
To continue the unbeaten streak against Arsenal is difficult, but I hope to maintain that streak.”
The Argentine strategist added about the situation of Chelsea’s force: “We review the cases of Axel, Reece and Nico. Broja is absent. We need to consider whether some players can play from the start.” Or have to sit on the bench.
Benoit will probably sit on the bench. Reece has been training well over the past few days. Now it is necessary to talk with all the medical staff to decide.
Enzo trained yesterday, and Caicedo just returned and is in very good shape. They are ready.”
