Chelsea score three minutes into Mauricio Pochettino era – but fans miss out on goal due to technical issues

It took just three minutes for Chelsea to grab their first goal of the Mauricio Pochettino era after Ian Maatsen’s early strike against Wrexham.

Though sadly for Blues fans, a number of supporters watching on the club website and app missed out due to technical issues.

Chelsea broke the deadlock in the Florida Cup after their first meaningful attack, with Maatsen, who spent last season on loan at Burnley, finishing off a fine move.

The Dutchman was picked out by summer signing Nicolas Jackson, with the 21-year-old confidently sweeping the ball home past veteran goalkeeper Ben Foster.

However his goal was missed by many supporters, who experienced trouble signing in on Chelsea’s website and app, with users left with a ‘504 gateway time-out’ error.

And Twitter users were quick to take to social media to comment on the problem, as one fan said: “Why is the website acting up man I really missed a Maatsen goal.”

Another commented: “Someone share the goal highlight, missed it due to login issue.”

A third added: “Chelsea can’t even get their own website working. Stay up till this time to not even be able to watch the game.”

This supporter then messaged: “I never trusted the Chelsea website.”

Meanwhile one simply stated: “Chelsea website is awful.”

Another disappointed fan posted: “Man Chelsea need to fix their website. I didn’t stay up for this.”

Maatsen then added a second goal in the 42nd minute to cap a dominant first half performance from the west Londoners.

Pochettino elected to name a youthful side against their Welsh opponents, as he omitted a number of star players.

Mykhailo Mudryk, Enzo Fernandez, Levi Colwill and Noni Madueke all failed to make the squad.

While Christopher Nkunku and Raheem Sterling were forced to settle for a place on the bench.
