Chelsea boss Pochettino makes Cole Palmer mistake

The Pride of London believe that Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino made a slight error in chastising Cole Palmer publicly on the pitch at full time and to media after he missed a chance to score against Preston North End in the FA Cup Third Round. In addition to that, PoL examine what Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said about the shock possibility of former Red Jordan Henderson joining Chelsea Football Club this month.

Following what appeared to be an 'awkward exchange' between Palmer and Pochettino at the end of Preston match, the gaffer was questioned on the incident. The 51-year-old was, ostensibly, bemoaning his player for missing an opportunity during the match. Essentially, the ever-candid Argentine did offer an explanation:

""Today a little bit disappointed because he didn't score a big chance he has and he's young and still needs to improve in different areas. He needs to understand many things but is improving a lot, a very good player for us and he is doing fantastic and I am so pleased.""

Giving the youthful and productive playmaker the benefit of the doubt would be my advice to 'Poch'. Discussing issues in private is also preferable.

Jurgen Klopp breaks silence on Jordan Henderson to Chelsea speculation

It was a surprise that Henderson was linked to Chelsea over the weekend, let me tell you. It was less of a bombshell that the ex-Red was fed up in his new capacity of wanting to 'grow the game' in Saudi Arabia. But enough of our impressions of the England player's widely criticised decisions and character. Let's hear what the ever-entertaining Klopp had to say as his one-time favourite is linked with an eye-opening move to west London in January.

The German gave a seemingly dismissive, facetious and slightly sardonic response when quizzed about hearsay regarding Henderson wanting to depart his team, Al-Ettifaq FC and potentially join CFC. Basically, Klopp slightly sarcastically asked reporters if 'Hendo' had given a press conference to clarify, in response. The latest reports state that it 'remains to be seen' if the Saudi football star wishes to leave the country, or make a Premier League comeback.
