Chelsea fans in anger heavily chanted against Pochettino and Todd Boehly Chelsea's Co-owner, Chelsea is in 11th place on the league table causing fans to rage over the team's poor performance.

A strike from Nicolas Jackson gave Chelsea a first-half victory, however, Brentford stole the lead from Chelsea after goals from Mads Roerslev and Yoane Wissa canceled out Nicolas Jackson’s opener.

After Stambridge's side went down 2-1 Chelsea fans chanted against Pochettino and co-owner Todd Boehly and sang the name of former manager Jose Mourinho.

Axel Disasi’s late equaliser for Chelsea did appease the fans a little with Pochettino questioned about their reaction in his post-match press conference.

"No, I am not worried," he said. "We need to accept. I told you, I think someone asked me do you feel the love from the fans. No. We need to build our relationship between the coaching staff, the coach, and the fans.

"You build relationships by winning games. But at the moment, the expectation, we cannot match the expectation. We are not going to ask for love. I don't ask for nothing.

"I am going to continue to work and try to change this situation and change, winning games, we now have one week before Newcastle."

Chelsea fans were thoroughly displeased following Chelsea’s loss and below-average performance against Liverpool in last weekend’s Carabao Cup final.

"We need to manage the reality," Pochettino said. "We are working really, really hard to try and win games. The team is fighting.

"I think in six days, we played 120 minutes on Sunday, Wednesday was another tough game, then some decisions because of injuries or some circumstances.
"We tried to find different ways to play. But if that doesn't work and the fans are disappointed with that, I need to respect their opinions."

"If they did what they did, I think it is a frustration," he said. "We need to understand that. I am fighting to try and provide the team the tools to work, improve, and play in the best way, score goals and win games.
"If that is not possible, today is my 52nd birthday, I know very well this business. I am not going to give up, I am going to fight. I am ready to fight again tomorrow and get ready for the next game. Yes, we are going to keep going."
