Mauricio Pochettino believes nights like our dramatic late victory over Manchester United will help build a passionate relationship between the Chelsea players and supporters at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea came out on top in an incredible Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening. The Blues took a two-goal lead inside 20 minutes, which was then wiped out by half-time before Manchester United went 3-2 up after the break.

However, two goals in one minute by Cole Palmer, completing the forward's first Blues hat-trick, sealed an unbelievable 4-3 win deep into added time and sparked wild celebrations on and off the pitch at the Bridge.

Unsurprisingly, Mauricio Pochettino admitted it was a moment he enjoyed a lot, as he reflected on what he felt was a deserved win. But more importantly he hopes it will be one of those moments which cements a passionate bond between the players and the supporters.

'Of course I enjoyed it,' said Pochettino. 'It was amazing because I was thinking we deserved it, we were the better team today. It was fair when we scored in the last minute.

'We started the game really well and at 2-0 for us the game was under control. Then we made a mistake and we suffered a big emotional impact. It wasn’t easy to deal with this.

'In the second half again we controlled the game and we conceded in transition. Of course the way we conceded the three goals was disappointing because I think we should be better in these types of situations. But if you analyse the game I think it was a fair result, three points for us.

'And to finish in the way that we finished, for the connection between our players and fans, it was a very good thing that happened for us tonight and it should be a turning point for the team and the fans to have trust in each other.'

Pochettino explained why the win was made even sweeter by the importance of the game...

'It was very emotional at the end because of the way it happened and it felt really unfair when we were losing. The feeling was not so good because we were thinking why we were losing the game.

'Football is like this, but until the end we always kept believing. When we scored the equaliser we were saying to our players that there was still two minutes and we believed that we could still score the winning goal.

'I am so happy because the end was of course emotional, because we won the game like this and got three points. For us it was really important because it was a must-win game if we wanted to reduce the gap to the teams above us. The three points today was so important.'

Our head coach also explained what he believes is hat-trick hero Palmer's most important quality...

'One of his best skills is his mentality and his capacity to deal with the pressure. He’s young, it is his first season playing very consistently and I think it is amazing the way he deals with the pressure.

'That shows he can be a very good player. Looking at his performance today it is impossible to say that he’s not a top player, but there’s still a lot of room to improve.'
