FA Cup: Pochettino reveals details of Chelsea team meeting ahead Man City clash


Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has said he held a meeting with his entire squad and staff to remind them of the importance of discipline.

This follows a clash between his players over a penalty kick in the 6-0 win over Everton on Monday.

Cole Palmer scored four goals in the game, but Conor Gallagher had to push Nicolas Jackson and Noni Madueke away as they fought over a second-half penalty.

Gallagher then handed the ball to Palmer, who is the side’s designated penalty taker.

Pochettino has now confirmed that he spoke to the entire team ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup clash with Manchester City.

“I made it clear after the game. We had a meeting with players and staff; also involved were the sporting directors [Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley] and I explained my feelings and the way they are going to act in the future if something like this [happens].

“Now we need to move on; they are clever and understand the situation. We were talking a lot after Monday. Wednesday, Thursday and today, still because we were practising penalties,” Pochettino told the media.
