Many new Chelsea players will make their debut today against AFC Wimbledon; Pochettino gives the names of players

Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino admits he will give several debuts tonight in the Carabao Cup clash with AFC Wimbledon.

Pochettino admits he could field 16 year-olds in the second round tie.

He said, “At the moment I do not tell the names, until we give the list to them. I prefer that they know this way and don’t want to create a situation that they can be disappointed.

“They have not been involved before and will be on the bench first of all. If things are going well maybe they will have the possibility to play, but they will start on the bench.

“They are 16 or 17 and have the possibility to play at Stamford Bridge in an official competition for the first team. It’s an exciting moment for them and for their families. I know what it means for them. I think it’s fantastic for us also to feel the excitement of a young guy who is with us for the first time. We had yesterday and today training with the first team and you can see their happiness.

“I hope that we can have this feeling for the fans and for the people for the future, we have a philosophy of the club. I think the Academy always was fantastic and we need again to reinforce, to re-energise the Academy. We believe in them because Chelsea always was famous for bringing good players into the first team.”
