Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino says his side should have picked up all three points in their Premier League opener against Liverpool
Luis Diaz gave Liverpool the lead early in the game before Axel Disasi scored his debut goal in his maiden appearance for the Blues on Sunday to draw Chelsea level with the game recording no more goals.
The tense game at Stamford Bridge ended 1-1- as the two teams picked their first point of the season but Pochettino believes his side deserved more from the fixture.
“In the beginning, it was tough,” Pochettino said after the game. “Liverpool was better for 15/20 minutes. But after we started to feel more comfortable on the pitch, find our ways to play, our positions, all the things we were working on the training ground. After that, the performance was really good.
“We scored and then we showed a great performance and effort. I am so pleased with the performance and I think we deserved to win. We only conceded one shot on target against a team like Liverpool – that is a big credit to the players.
“It’s only the start, only the beginning. After six weeks working together, all I can say is thank you to all the staff in all the areas of the clubs. But the players, they are the principle actors.”
Chelsea will come up against West Ham United in their next league game next weekend while Liverpool face Bournemouth.
