Chelsea fans turn on Pochettino in draw at Brentford in EPL

LONDON (AP) - Chelsea fans turned on Mauricio Pochettino as they watched their team labor to draw at west London rival Brentford 2-2 in the English Premier League on Saturday.

The Blues were leading through Nicolas Jackson's 35th-minute header but were pegged back by Mads Roerslev's close-range strike in the 50th.

When Yoane Wissa put Brentford ahead with a spectacular overhead kick in the 69th, the away fans began singing the name of former manager Jose Mourinho as well as calling for Pochettino to go.

But the Blues rescued a point on Pochettino's 52nd birthday after Axel Disasi headed home Cole Palmer's cross.

The point left Chelsea languishing in 11th place in another dismal league campaign and the first season under Pochettino.
