Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino had to answer questions of Chelsea’s continued interest in Moises Caicedo.

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino was satisfied with his team's response after going a goal down and fighting back to earn a point against Liverpool in their Premier League opener.

The Chelsea boss, however, will not give anything away when asked if his team had won the battle against Liverpool for the signing of Moises Caicedo despite the Reds reportedly having a fee in the region of £115million accepted by Brighton and Hove Albion.

He told reporters when asked about the signing: “No, at the moment we don’t know anything.”

“We are working so hard, but I think the moment something happens, we will inform you – through the club.

Several Chelsea players were impressive in the game vs Liverpool but it was the performance of star midfielder Enzo Fernadez who dominated the game and showed why Chelsea had to break the bank for his service.

Manager Pochettino said it was nice to see and something to build on to going forward. He told reporters: “Enzo was good. Today the team showed, we only conceded one shot on target against Liverpool.

“I think the team was solid. We need good players, we need to improve the squad. That is not new. For sure we are going to improve the squad, it’s about finding the right profile to find the right combination.

“The team was sold, we conceded only one shot on target against Liverpool. I don’t know if we can be more solid. We need to create more chances to create the capacity to score more goals. It is the first step, I am so pleased.”

Chelsea will now hope they are ready for West Ham United who also drew their first game of the season away to Bournemouth.
