Former Chelsea player, Chris Sutton believes that Mauricio Pochettino has done reasonably well with the Blues since his appointment as manager.
Fans have started calling Pochettino to be sacked just seven months into his tenure, following back to back Premier League defeats to Liverpool and Wolves, but Sutton thinks the former Tottenham boss needs to be backed.
“It is easy to say you need to change manager,” Sutton told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“If you look at the job Pochettino did at Tottenham, eventually he got there.
“Certainly there needs to be patience with the manager.
“They have no choice but to hang on in there, trust Pochettino and hope he gradually improves them.
“When you spend that kind of money you would expect the team to be slicker and better than they are at this moment in time.
“They do have an identity – they want to press high and be brave on the ball playing out from the back – but are a team low on confidence.
“They have made tiny bit of progress if you compare it to last season but last season was so bad it was impossible not to do that.”
