Chelsea host Aston Villa in the Premier League and the team news is in from Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have picked up just five points from their opening five games this season, last time out, the west Londoners were held to a 0-0 draw as they travelled down to the south coast to play AFC Bournemouth.
The Blues’ campaign so far has been an underwhelming one, following the big money moves in the summer, expectations are high, but Pochettino is calling for patience.
“Thomas [Tuchel] arrived in a different project. A project that was already built,” he said. “As we arrived in a project where the principle guide was changing. That is why it is different We all think the same, with different ideas, and different philosophies.”
Pochettino continued: “We need to accept there was a project, an idea, but undoubtedly we are going to build something for the future, important but with time. You can destroy in one second but to build and to start to work, the steps are little.
“From the outside, it is difficult to the improvement and progress but from the inside we are doing well, we are building a very strong institute and for sure we start to get the results we want.”
He also added: “Should we win every game because we are Chelsea? Yes. We’re not the Chelsea that won the Champions League or Premier League, we’re in progress, to improve, to find our way to perform together. But accept that the competition will not wait for us.”
The Premier League clash will get underway at 2pm BST at Stamford Bridge.
