EPL: He’s important to us, doesn’t need pressure – Pochettino on Chelsea star

By

Chelsea manager, Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that Christopher Nkunku is important to the club after he scored his first Premier League goal for the Blues on Christmas Eve against Wolves.

Pochettino also said that the France international doesn’t need too much pressure after featuring twice for Chelsea in the Premier League so far this season.

Recall that Nkunku’s goal was not enough as Chelsea were beaten 2-1 at Molineux.

Mario Lemina and Matt Doherty scored the goals for the hosts against the visitors.

Speaking at his post-match press conference, Pochettino said: “I’m very pleased to see Nkunku score and it shows how important he can be for us.

“We cannot put too much pressure on him, he’s been out for a very long time and that is why he came on after 60 minutes – to help ease him in.

“He’s a quality player who can score goals and we are pleased he did that today, although of course we are disappointed not to win the game.”
