Mauricio Pochettino earned a significant win in his second outing as Chelsea manager this summer, defeating Premier League side Brighton. After scoring four goals, the Blues appeared to have significantly improved in the contest.
They scored four goals today after scoring five in the first preseason game, demonstrating how good they will become under the Argentine management. They want to return to winning ways under their new manager, and they might be one of the greatest teams next season.
Chelsea fell behind to Brighton in the 13th minute, but they staged a remarkable comeback after Christopher Nkunku equalized in the 19th.
In the second half, the Blues made an incredible comeback after Ukrainian forward Mykhailo Mudryk give his team a decisive lead in the 65th minute. Conor Gallagher doubled the lead in the 72nd minute to give his team a big chance of winning the game.
The Blues continued to create more chances and attack which lead to them scoring their fourth goal of the game through summer signing Nicolas Jackson. Roberto De Zerbi’s men scored two more goals in the game through Joao Pedro and Deniz Undav but they were not enough for a comeback.
Chelsea played incredibly well, and Mauricio Pochettino should have put Mykhailo Mudryk ahead of Raheem Sterling in the second half. The 22-year-old winger scored his first goal for Chelsea and had an incredible impact on the game.
Mudryk made sure Chelsea looked decent in attack and caused issues for Brighton defenders throughout the second half. Mudryk could play more next season, and he could put up great numbers under Mauricio Pochettino.
