A brace from Fernandez and a goal from Levi Colwill gave Chelsea a 3-2 win over Brighton at Stamford Bridge. Speaking at his post-match interview, Pochettino said,
“I’m so proud of the players and the character they showed. I told them at half-time I was happy because it was a great opportunity for us, a massive challenge. “We needed to show that we are a team.”
Speaking about Fernandez’s goals, the former Tottenham coach added, “It is important that different players can score. For Enzo, it was his first and second goal in the Premier League. We are always talking about confidence, it is important that they are building that confidence.
“Players always need six months or one season to start to show their real quality, why is it going to be different at Chelsea? I am so happy that different players could score goals, to help the team.”
