Enzo Fernandez says Chelsea are aiming for the Premier League title this season, along with the domestic cups, as he says expectations have changed since Mauricio Pochettino’s arrival as manager.

The Argentina international only arrived at Stamford Bridge in January, in the middle of a disastrous season for the club which saw them finish 12th in the Premier League.

Thomas Tuchel, Graham Potter and Frank Lampard all took charge of the Blues last season but Pochettino is now pulling the strings and Fernandez says things are very different.

The 22-year-old does not think that the woeful last campaign will stop Chelsea from returning to past glories and says they are aiming for the top once again, with a new, more aggressive attitude.

‘Now we have a new head coach, you have to say the expectations of us have changed,’ Fernandez told B/R Football. ‘Obviously when I arrived, everything was difficult, there were lots of changes going on and everything happened so fast for me.

‘But now the expectations have changed: we want to be an aggressive team, a team that attacks and defends well, that goes into every game to win it, whoever we’re playing against, and look to dominate every game we’re in.

‘And obviously we want to try to win the Premier League, that’s our goal for this year.

‘As well as that, I think the cups in England start in January, but the main aim this year is to win the Premier League.’

On his arrival at the club earlier this summer, Pochettino did not set specific targets, but said he wanted to bring happiness back to Chelsea through winning.

‘What we want is to bring the happiness again to this great football club, working hard, playing in the way that the fans can enjoy football,’ he said.

‘The history of Chelsea is to win. But it’s important also in the way that we are going to build up the victories – I think in the last 10, 12, 15 years Chelsea is the greatest team in England.

‘I know very well the Premier League, I know very well what Chelsea means, the culture of Chelsea.’
