Chelsea manager, Mauricio Pochettino has joked that the club’s owners would “kill him” if he didn’t start two players against Arsenal.

The Blues threw away a two-goal lead against the Gunners at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

Although Pochettino had a number of key players out injured, he was still able to name a strong side, including Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez who both cost £222million.

Caicedo and Fernandez played the entire 90 minutes despite returning late from international duty.

Pochettino said: “It’s crazy for players to come back from South America on Wednesday and play on Saturday.

“But if I say “OK, I’m going to give them a rest” you [the media] will kill me, for sure if they don’t play – and the owner also!

“Today Caceido and Enzo arrived after two games in America and they were not fresh. But they are important plasters for us.”
