Pochettino rues lack of senior players in Chelsea squad — is he right?

Mauricio Pochettino recently hinted at his frustration that he’s been forced to work with an inexperienced and newly-formed squad at Chelsea in his debut season.

The Argentine rued the lack of senior players in the squad and how there are too many youngsters to work with.

Well, going by the current state of the squad, Poch isn’t exactly wrong with his assumption either. There are actually only a handful of ‘experienced’ players in the squad.

Thiago Silva (39), Raheem Sterling (29), Marcus Bettinelli (31), Ben Chilwell (27), Robert Sanchez (26) and Christopher Nkunku (26) are the only players above the age of 25 in the squad.

Among these players, Nkunku is currently in his first season in the Premier League and Bettinelli is a reserve goalkeeper who is never used.

Chelsea also currently has the youngest squad among all 20 Premier League sides, having an average age of just 23.7.

With that being said, the Blues should probably target more experienced players in the summer transfer window to help fix the issues Poch complains of.
