Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino is on the verge of being fired four months after the opening.
British media Express reported on Saturday that Pochettino could lose his team due to Chelsea’s poor performance. Chelsea wasted countless opportunities this season. They lost to Wolverhampton on Christmas Eve as well.
Chelsea lost to Wolverhampton 1-2 in an away match against Wolverhampton in the 2023-2024 season at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton. Chelsea (6 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses) ranked 10th.
Chelsea went through ups and downs last season. They parted ways with Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter one after another. They ended the season under the leadership of acting coach Frank Lampard. They shouted “change” ahead of this season. Pochettino took the helm. The Express said, “After Todd Bailey joined Chelsea, we invested more than 1 billion pounds to recruit players. However, this seems to have been a huge waste of time. The biggest problem for Chelsea is to lose an incredible amount of time in front of the goal. Chelsea has missed 36 of their 57 big chances in the league this season. There is no sign of improvement, and Pochettino’s pressure is increasing.”
Meanwhile, according to statistics specialist Opta, Chelsea recorded 19 losses in 2023. Among the five major European leagues, only three teams have recorded more losses than Chelsea. Almeria (Spain) lost 24 times, while Werder Bremen (Germany) and Empoli (Italy) lost 20 times.
