Respect yourselves – Pochettino warns Chelsea players

Leandro Trossard, Ben White and former Chelsea hero Kai Havertz were all on the scoresheet – with White and Havertz both bagging themselves a brace at the Emirates Stadium.

“We were talking a lot, today we had a meeting,” the Chelsea boss said.

“We tried to realise how we need to behave when the game is tough, when the demands are so high. We need to try and be more strong and to trust in the way that we play, in our philosophy, in the way we prepare the games.

“To have the discipline, it’s true, like after the game, we cannot blame the players that the circumstances that we are leaving. We need to be positive and we need to be strong and believe tomorrow we can have a good game, good attitude, good approach.

“We are going to compete again with another team, fighting for the top. We need to think we are Chelsea and respect ourselves.”
