Chelsea midfielder, Carney Chukwuemeka, has credited Mauricio Pochettino for the goal he scored against Leicester City in the FA Cup on Sunday.

Recall that Chukwuemeka came on from the bench to score a goal in the Blues’ 4-2 win over Leicester City.

In a chat with BBC Match of the Day, he stated that Pochettino told him he should do what he knows best.


“I enjoyed it,” he told BBC Match of the Day of his goal and performance after the game.

“Coach [Pochettino] said ‘just go on and do what we know you can do, express yourself’, and that is what I did.

“Obviously I’ve got to thank my boy Cole for the one-two. To be fair before the game he said to me he was going to assist me if I come on, so fair play to him.”
