Following Chelsea recent victory over Newcastle, head coach Mauricio Pochettino has issued a stern yet encouraging message to winger Mykhaylo Mudryk. Despite Mudryk's impressive performance, which included a pivotal goal, Pochettino insists that this is merely the beginning of what is expected from the Ukrainian international.

In a post-match address, Pochettino praised Mudryk's impact but emphasized the need for continuous improvement and consistency. "Mykhaylo's goal was a moment of brilliance, and it's exactly the kind of impact we need," Pochettino stated. "However, this should not be a peak but a foundation for him to build upon and raise his level even further."

The match, which ended in a 3-2 win for Chelsea, saw Mudryk come off the bench to score a decisive goal, showcasing his skill and composure. Pochettino's warning serves as a reminder that while individual brilliance can change games, sustained effort and development are key to the team's long-term success.

Pochettino also took the opportunity to remind the squad of the broader project at hand, highlighting the different approach the club is taking under his leadership. "We are Chelsea, and we are in the midst of building something unique," he explained. "It's a process that requires belief, even when faced with tough circumstances."

This victory and Pochettino's subsequent remarks signal a potential turning point for Chelsea as they strive to find their rhythm and identity under the new management. With the support of the owners and a clear direction from the coach, Chelsea looks to build on this win and forge a path to success.
