Conor Gallagher, the high-profile Chelsea midfielder, was seen angrily shouting at Enzo Fernandez during their lackluster 0-0 draw against Bournemouth on Sunday. The draw pushed Chelsea down to 14th place in the Premier League table, with this being their fourth match without a victory this season.
Gallagher's frustration gets the better of him
Gallagher, who was given the captain's armband for the match, showed his frustration towards Fernandez towards the end of the game. The £107 million midfielder seemed in no hurry to leave the pitch when he was substituted in the 81st minute, prompting him to shout at Fernandez in a "very loud manner" according to reports.
Blues boss Pochettino responds to booing fans
After the match, Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino addressed the club's disgruntled supporters. He acknowledged their disappointment, given the significant investment in the team, but reminded fans of the circumstances the team had to face. Pochettino highlighted the high number of injured players, which has hindered Chelsea's performances so far this season.
Pochettino said, "Even Manchester City, Arsenal, all the teams, with a normal circumstance with all the squad fit, of course, can compete for everything. Why is it different for us? Why? It is because of what? We don't have all the squad available from the beginning of the season."
Looking ahead to the next match
Despite the frustrations and setbacks, Chelsea will look to bounce back in their next game against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Can they turn their fortunes around and secure a much-needed victory?
