Marc Cucurella admitted Chelsea followed Pochettino’s gameplan in Burnley win

Marc Cucurella disclosed how Chelsea rediscovered their goal-scoring prowess against Burnley over the weekend.

Chelsea secured their third consecutive victory on Saturday by overwhelming Burnley 4-1 at Turf Moor.

Although the Blues conceded an early goal, they mounted a spirited comeback in the second half to clinch a morale-boosting win.

Marc Cucurella, who was included in the starting lineup for the third consecutive game, shared how Chelsea’s players orchestrated a turnaround against Vincent Kompany’s team.

Speaking to chelseafc.com, Cucurella said, “The reaction of the team after conceding the goal was very good. We created chances and after half time, we were very focused on what we needed to do. We scored early [in the second half] and then dominated the game. It’s a very good win for us because we were confident and scored a lot of goals.”

“In other games, maybe we lose confidence [after going behind], but today we followed the game plan, kept building, and kept fighting. The confidence in the team is better after two wins in a row. Today, maybe we got a little bit of luck with the first goal, we’ve not had that in other games. Then we continue. We believe in ourselves and the plan and we have a really important three points.”

Consecutive Premier League victories against Fulham and Burnley have positioned Mauricio Pochettino’s team in 11th place in the Premier League, with only six points separating them from fourth place.

After the international break, the Blues will resume their matches when they face Arsenal on October 21st.
