WATCH: Pochettino says Chelsea’s effort was not at the minimum level required in draw with ten-man Burnley

Mauricio Pochettino says his Chelsea side were not at the minimum level required to compete in the Premier League in their 2-2 draw with ten-man Burnley.

Lorenz Assignon was sent off at the end of the first half for Burnley after fouling Mykhailo Mudryk in the box, with Cole Palmer converting the subsequent penalty after Burnley boss Vincent Kompany had also seen red for his reaction to the penalty being given.

Palmer had put the Blues 2-1 up in the second half after a fine equaliser from Josh Cullen but Dara O’Shea’s header ensured the Clarets gained an unexpected point and Pochettino could not hide his frustration after the game.

“Today we didn’t show the capacity, the energy, the hunger – not the minimum to compete in the Premier League,’ Pochettino said.

“That is why I am so upset and disappointed.

“It is more here (points to his heart) and it’s more here (points to his head) than in your legs. It is more about to be about strong like a group, like a team.

“That is sometimes the circumstance that for different reasons we are so slow evolving in this area. That is the key today.”
