Chelsea 5-0 Wexham: Nkunku Scores First Blues Goal As Pochettino Gets off to a flying start

Mauricio Pochettino began life as Chelsea manager with a huge win against Wrexham as the Blues kicked off their pre-season tour and a brand new era with a bang in the United States.

The former Tottenham boss is overseeing a huge rebuild of the club following such a disappointing season last time out and handed a slew of debuts in his first match in charge in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Ian Maatsen was the unlikely hero of a youthful starting XI with an average age of just 19 as he netted a stylish first-half brace with assists from Nicolas Jackson and Carney Chukwuemeka, with dominant Chelsea then turning up the heat late on to add real gloss to the scoreline.

First Conor Gallagher fired home, then new £53million signing Christopher Nkunku rounded the goalkeeper before finishing in expert fashion. The rout was finished off by a lovely lob from Ben Chilwell, teed up by another fresh arrival in Angelo Gabriel.
