Chelsea manager, Mauricio Pochettino said he understands fans' frustrations with the club’s poor start to the season.

Chelsea's poor form continued with a 0-0 draw at Bournemouth on Sunday, the second game in a row in which Pochettino's side failed to score after they lost 1-0 to Nottingham Forest earlier this month.

Chelsea sit 14th in the Premier League with five points from five games, despite spending around $1 billion in transfer fees since the new ownership led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital completed their takeover of the club in May 2022.

"I think the fans know if you invest the money that people talk about in the media, there is expectation. If you do not win, it is normal that the fans are not happy. What I can tell the fans are the circumstances, which we cannot change. There are too many players not available," Pochettino said.
