Now that the new owners have promised to improve things, Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has to work hard to show that his team has grown since last season. It comes at a time when the Blues are still having a tough time in the Premier League, sitting in the middle of the table after a string of poor results and performances.
They lost their most recent game 2-1 to Wolves, which put them in tenth place on Christmas Day and could drop even further by the time they play Crystal Palace. The home team won thanks to goals from Mario Lemina and Matt Doherty, even though Christopher Nkunku scored his first goal for Chelsea.
As the players thanked the fans in the away section, they could see that they were angry because their problems in both boxes were affecting their play. It’s clear that Pochettino and his team are very upset. “We deserve a lot more than what we got, but we can’t hide the fact that in the Premier League, if you aren’t clinical, you can’t be upset about the result.”
In the first half, we had a lot of chances to score but didn’t. We had most of the ball in the first half and Wolves didn’t get a single shot on goal, so I think the score should have been different at halftime. We gave up a few corners in the second half, which let Wolves take the lead. They were more scientific, which is why the outcome was what it was.
After the loss, there were more rumours that Pochettino might be fired because the team is still having trouble. We don’t know how patient the new owners will be yet, since they told the fans in the summer that they would make changes.
On the club website, they said, “We are still fully committed to the long-term and sustainable success of our club and keeping the promise we made to you.” “We know we have a big part to play in helping Chelsea FC grow, and we take that role very seriously.” Everyone who works here is constantly focused on moving us forward.
It’s clear that our men’s team has had a poor season. We can and will do a lot better next time. Even though the past year has been hard, we are hopeful about the future. We’re excited for Mauricio Pochettino to take over as head coach of our men’s team in July.
However, Pochettino’s record doesn’t look much better at this point in the season compared to this time last year. When Graham Potter was fired, the team was in 11th place in the Premier League, with 39 points from 29 games. Now, they are in 10th place, with 22 points from 18 games.
It means that if the head coach makes it to those 29 games and the team’s record doesn’t get better than 39 points, the owners will have broken their word, and there could be a good reason to fire them. Potter led Chelsea to seven wins, seven draws, and eight losses in 22 Premier League games. Pochettino, on the other hand, has led Spurs to six wins, four draws, and eight losses in 18 games.
Given how much money is being spent on transfers and the lack of Europe, it’s clear that the owners will be worried if there’s no progress.
