Chelsea fans were irked by the lackluster performance of their players on Saturday despite the late rally to salvage a point in the 2-2 draw against Brentford at the Gtech Community stadium but the Blues head coach Mauricio Pochettino is unfazed by the criticisms, Allnews.ng reports. 

Pochettino’s men have occupied the 10th place in the Premier League table for large spells this season and are now one place below in 11th position after the match. 

The West London side put up a subdued showing in the game against the Bees who almost did a double over them this season. 

Pochettino spoke to the media at the post match press conference where he spoke about his thoughts on the call for him to be relieved of his job. 

It is normal, we were losing 2-1 and they were expressing their frustration. I am responsible, I am the head coach,” Pochettino said of anger in the stands.

Less than one week ago, the Blues were beaten by Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley stadium. 

“The relationship is good, the fans are emotional. I know this business. I will never give up, I am going to fight.”

The highlight of game was the goal struck by DR Congo forward Yoane Wissa with an overhead kick in the 70th minute. 

Sergio Reguilon delivered a tantalising cross which Nigeria international Frank Onyeka flicked onto the oath of the forward before letting a bicycle kick. 

Before then, Nicholas Jackson, who had a great game scored the first goal in the 35th minute but Brentford equalised through Mads Roerslev five minutes into the second half. 

Axel Disasi at fault for the goal scored by Thomas Frank's side redeemed homsel with an excellent goal. 

Pochettino accepts that he needs to “build” a stronger relationship with Chelsea supporters through winning more matches.

“I am not worried, we need to accept this relationship. Between the coaching staff, the coach and the fans, you build a relationship through winning games. But at the moment, we cannot match the expectation,” the Argentine reiterated.

“I am going to continue to work, and try to change this perception and try to win games.

“We need to manage reality. We are working really hard to try to win games. The team is fighting," Pochetino stressed.
