Jamie Carragher has praised Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino, describing him as the ‘best thing’ about the club at the moment.
Pochettino watched as his side fought back from behind three times to claim a point against Manchester City, with Cole Palmer leveling in stoppage time.

The thrilling 4-4 draw will provide Pochettino and his side with fresh hope, and Carragher has insisted the manager remains the star at Stamford Bridge.
“The best thing about Chelsea at the moment is Pochettino, not the players or the owners, but the manager,” Carragher said live on Sky Sports.

‘That’s the main man. When you’re talking about Chelsea winning trophies again, I’m not sure they could have gotten a better manager available. Everything around him needs to improve.
“The players, they will now have confidence that they can come up against the best team in the world – confidence in the manager too, that he can set them up in a certain way, every big game he gets for the opposition. .
‘They were the better team against Liverpool, the better team against Arsenal and I think today they were the better team in terms of causing problems for the opposition.
‘So there’s a lot to feel good about with Chelsea, we can go back to ownership and how much they’ve spent.
“But as far as Pochettino and the young players are concerned, there is a lot of optimism going forward that they can compete with the best teams and a manager who can compete with the best managers.”
