Mauricio Pochettino criticized two Chelsea players, Moises Caicedo and Thiago Silva, for their mistakes in the team’s 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
Pochettino said that the two players were responsible for the goal that Forest scored, and that they need to improve their concentration and decision-making.
Caicedo, a 20-year-old Ecuadorian midfielder, was caught out of position in the build-up to Forest’s goal, and he failed to track back to challenge for the ball.
Silva, a 37-year-old Brazilian defender, is one of the most experienced players in the Premier League.
However, he also made a mistake in the build-up to Forest’s goal, and he was unable to prevent the ball from going in.
“We made one mistake and we cannot make it. That is why we feel really disappointed.
“Football is about not making mistakes. We made one mistake and we paid for that,” Pochettino said.
The loss to Forest was Chelsea’s second in four Premier League games. The team is currently in eleventh place in the table, and they are 5 points behind the top four.
Pochettino will be hoping that his team can bounce back from the loss when they face Bournemouth after the international break.
