Todd Boehly Chelsea vs Brighton: Mauricio Pochettino Watch
Todd Boehly watched as Chelsea narrowly beat Brighton, with high hopes for new manager Mauricio Pochettino to lead the team to success.
Todd Boehly was present at Stamford Bridge to witness Chelsea's narrow victory over Brighton, with Mauricio Pochettino at the helm. The Blues initially seemed to have the game under control with a 2-0 lead, but a red card for Conor Gallagher made it a challenging 3-2 win in the end.
Boehly, who took over as Chelsea's owner from Roman Abramovich, has made significant investments in the team. He made the bold decision to dismiss Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter before appointing Frank Lampard as an interim coach.
In Pochettino, Boehly sees a potential builder for Chelsea's young team, drawing on the manager's track record of developing successful teams at Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur. However, it has not been a smooth journey for the 51-year-old manager, especially after facing consecutive matches with ten players.
Last week, Chelsea suffered a 4-1 defeat to Newcastle United with ten men, leading to speculation about Pochettino's future. However, his team's resilient performance against Brighton may have alleviated some of that pressure.
Looking ahead, Chelsea will face Manchester United in the Premier League, aiming to secure another victory. Despite United's recent defeat to Newcastle, they have won three consecutive league matches, making it an important fixture for both teams.
