Why Chelsea lost to Middlesbrough – Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino, the Chelsea manager, has acknowledged the team’s 1-0 loss to Middlesbrough in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

He expressed disappointment in the team’s performance, particularly their failure to capitalize on scoring opportunities and the challenges in breaking down the opposition’s defense.

The Blues failed to dominate the hosts and missed several big chances, with Cole Palmer especially being culpable.

Pochettino emphasized the need to focus on their upcoming match against Fulham and to prepare for the second leg of the semi-final.
