Disasi rescues Chelsea at Brentford as fans turn against Pochettino

A late header from Axel Disasi rescued a 2-2 draw for Chelsea at Brentford, but supporters turned against Blues manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Chelsea looked to put their Carabao Cup final defeat further behind them having beaten Leeds in the FA Cup on Wednesday, and they were on course to do so when Nicolas Jackson deservedly headed them in front during the first half.

Brentford had been hanging on for half-time but were transformed after the break, with Mads Roerslev pouncing in the box to equalise within five minutes of the restart before Wissa's brilliant acrobatic volley put them ahead.

Chelsea supporters began chanting against co-owner Todd Boehly, singing the name of Jose Mourinho and calling for Pochettino to go as Brentford looked to put the game to bed with Sergio Reguilon's header hitting a post.

But Disasi had the final say, nodding home at a corner in the 83rd minute after Bees goalkeeper Mark Flekken had cheaply conceded the set-piece. Chelsea remain 11th in the Premier League while Brentford are six points above the relegation zone.
