Mauricio Pochettino should be fired, according to Chelsea supporters, after the team lost 2-1 to Wolves in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Following yet another lacklustre performance at the Molineux on Christmas Eve, the former PSG coach is under pressure.
Despite making significant player acquisitions in the summer, Chelsea has struggled to be consistent in the Premier League this year, winning just six of their first 18 games.
Wolves’ goals in the second half from Mario Lemina and Matt Doherty handed Pochettino’s team their eighth loss of the year.
In the ninetieth minute, substitute Christopher Nkunku cut the deficit with a header on his Premier League debut.
To express their annoyance, Chelsea supporters have taken to social media. The Pochettino out hashtag is presently trending on X.
“Why would you bench Nkunku and play two poor strikers?” Friedrich remarked on X. #Pochettinoout
“I’m there now,” wrote Alex Goldberg on X. Pochettino ought to be fired. No, it’s Christmas; that’s tomorrow. Rather, this evening. However, you dare not believe that will instantly make us better. We still operate like a circus and have serious cultural problems. #Pochettinoout
“They want to make it about Poch vs Attackers,” the Tolor wrote on X. Broja, Jackson, and Sterling all shouldn’t have started based on our last game. The only reason you would start Jackson would be if Nkunku wasn’t ready. Who is at fault here? #Pochettinoout
It’s time for #PochettinoOut, CFC Adam posted on X. This is terrible! Terrible setup, terrible tactics, inability to dismantle teams, and £1 billion spent on pure junk! Bravo, @ChelseaFC can’t believe I had to watch this awful team again at 4 a.m.

Pochettino, meanwhile, stated that Chelsea ought to have gotten more out of the match.
“Although I believe we should have received far more, we cannot deny that in a league as competitive as the Premier League, you cannot be clinical and then complain about the outcome.”
“We created a lot of chances in the first half, but we did not score,” he continued.
The Chelsea team, led by manager Mauricio Conte, and the Chelsea supporters will be looking for an immediate response when Chelsea plays Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
