Chelsea win in the FA Cup, relief for Pochettino – Football

Chelsea takes the pressure off their coach, Mauricio Pochettino, by winning 3-1 at Aston Villa in an FA Cup match that could have been fatal for the coach, in the sights of the fans after the two heavy defeats in the Premier League with Liverpool and Wolves and more generally for the disappointing season. Having left the field last Sunday amidst the boos of their fans, the Blues straightened out the situation by reaching the round of 16 of the tournament with goals from Gallagher, Jackson and Fernandez.

Pochettino made some courageous lineup choices, leaving players like Thiago Silva on the bench – a few hours after the Brazilian’s wife apologized for an outburst on social media in which he asked for ‘changes’ at the club – and Raheem Sterling, and the result gave him reason. Villa, fourth in the league, had to suffer elimination from the FA Cup after that in the Carabao Cup and now Unay Emery’s team will have to focus on the race for a place in the Champions League and success in the Conference League.
