After taking over a team that finished 12th last season, losing in the first round of both domestic club competitions and scoring just 38 goals in the league, Mauricio Pochettino had the freedom of Cobham and Stamford Bridge to throw the baby out with the bath water. Just over six months on from the announcement that he would be taking over as the third permanent boss under the new ownership group and it hasn’t been a smooth start.

 

 

In the Premier League Chelsea have won just four of their opening 13 games despite playing six of the bottom half. Although goalscoring is on the up, that has been boosted by eight goals in two games before the international break and on the flipside it is now nine conceded in the past three with the Blues only keeping out Luton, Bournemouth and Fulham.

 

 

 

With the most recent game, a horrific 4-1 defeat at Newcastle full of self-inflicted mistakes and general team-wide underperformance, there has been a return to the backlash that was being piled on during inconsistent runs in mid-October and before. Despite the positive results against Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal it was a ‘soft’ Chelsea that were rolled over by the Magpies, Pochettino himself said, and it is the boss being criticised.

 

With a track record of improving players and building at clubs there was an expectation that things would change from last year but trends have stayed the same despite wholesale player and staff movement. In this light he has come under pressure once more with certain sections of the insatiable fanbase growing restless.

 

Ultimately he has only had 16 games in charge but many will point to Thomas Tuchel last year and say he had even less of an opportunity under the new owners before being axed. To make matters worse there is financial pressure on getting back into Europe, a task that already looks a long way off.

 

Here, football.london takes a look at what pundits are expecting from Chelsea this season.
