Pochettino: Chelsea players made amazing effort for FA Cup win

Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino says their FA Cup win against Leeds United was deserved.

The Blues won 3-2 thanks to Conor Gallagher's final minute goal.

Pochettino said: "I think in the context of the week, I am happy.

"Amazing effort from the team, it wasn't easy. Leeds are a very good team, one of the best in Championship. The performance wasn't great but we scored at the end and won the game.

"Of course, it is about building our confidence again. When you face a team like Leeds they are full of confidence and it is not easy when you start losing the game.

"But, I think this type of game like the final is a good experience to be better every single week.

"The team is in good spirit and the relationship with the players is in a very good way."
