The discontent within Chelsea’s ranks appears to have reached a boiling point following the disappointing 2-2 draw against Burnley on Saturday, a match that saw the Blues struggle to capitalize against a 10-man side for the majority of the game.

The result against Burnley has not only further dented Chelsea’s aspirations for a higher league position but has also intensified the scrutiny on manager Mauricio Pochettino.

With Chelsea languishing in 11th place in the Premier League table, the expectations placed on Pochettino and his squad at the start of the season seem a far cry from the current reality.

Cole Palmer, the scorer of both goals for Chelsea in the game against Burnley, openly criticized the team’s performance as ‘poor’, encapsulating the growing frustration within the team. This sentiment is echoed strongly in the locker room, where several Chelsea players have reportedly taken the extraordinary step of expressing their desire to see Pochettino removed from his position.

According to HITC, several Chelsea players have communicated directly with the club’s board, suggesting that sacking Pochettino might be necessary to reverse the team’s fortunes.

The decision now lies with Todd Boehly and the Chelsea management, who are faced with the difficult choice of either backing Pochettino amidst the mounting pressure or seeking a new direction by appointing a new manager.

This situation is emblematic of the high-stakes environment of Premier League football, where results heavily influence managerial tenures, and the voices of players can play a pivotal role in the future of a club.

Pochettino, who came into Chelsea with a strong reputation, has found himself in a precarious position, with his future at the club now under intense speculation. The demand for success at Stamford Bridge is immense, and the current campaign has undoubtedly fallen short of those expectations.

The coming weeks will be critical for Pochettino as he attempts to navigate this storm and convince both the players and the board of his vision for Chelsea’s resurgence.

  1. Chelsea should get a coach from a big team in case they sack Mauricio not a coach from teams like Brighton as they want to do and not maurino because chelsea is not a defensive team so my favourite coach for Chelsea is either conte or xhavi Alonso
