Pochettino speaks on Chelsea's poor away form

The team's struggles away from home in the English topflight have left Pochettino worried, with the Argentine delving into the subject after the Liverpool thrashing.

According to the former Tottenham boss, personality and character are to blame for his side's disappointing record on the road.

"I think it’s part of our personality and character. We need to be more confident in ourselves," he said.
"Now we are improving at home. Last season, that was a big problem. Now we need to feel more confidence away from home," the 51-year-old added.

Chelsea's latest defeat has them sitting 10th in the standings with 31 points ahead of their meeting with Wolves on Sunday.

Lampard spotted at Stamford Bridge

Elsewhere, Sports Brief previously reported on Frank Lampard being spotted at Stamford Bridge for his former side’s 1-0 win over Fulham in the London derby.

His appearance at Stamford Bridge came at a time when Pochettino is facing immense pressure just months after he was appointed to the role.

The last time Lampard was at a game, he was appointed interim boss until the end of last season, leading to speculations from the fans that the Argentine manager could be axed.
