hilariously nutmegged his own player Deivid Washington in training on Friday.

The Argentine performed the trick in a behind-the-scenes video posted on Chelsea’s website – with and Cole Palmer among the players seen laughing – while Blues fans were left loving it on too.

‘Poch really did Deivid Washington cruel at the beginning with that nutmeg,’ one supporter posted on Twitter along with a laughing emoji.

Washington is yet to play a single game for Chelsea since he moved to Stamford Bridge from Santos this , with the Brazilian signing a seven-year contract.

It is thought that the west Londoners splashed out €20m (£17.2m) on the 18-year-old forward.

The nutmeg clip suggests that spirits are high at Chelsea, who have won their last three matches in all competitions following a slow start to the campaign.

, though, and Pochettino is under no illusions that it will be a tricky test for his side.

‘It is going to be tough because they are doing a great job,’ Pochettino said on Friday. ‘Very good squad, very good team.

‘They are playing so well they are competing for everything to win, not only the Premier League, the Champions League.

‘They are doing fantastic, it’s going to be tough but also we are confident we can give our best and give a very good game.’
