Despite a horrendous start to the Premier League season, Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino is not under any pressure of a sack just yet. The former Spurs manager has started his reign at Stamford Bridge with just one win, two draws, and three losses in the Premier League so far.

Owner Tedd Boehly showed his ruthlessness by sacking both Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter in the space of one season. However, Pochettino has implored the new owners to stick with his long-term vision. According to Football Insider, all parties, including Pochettino and at the boardroom level, are aware that the London club’s form needs to improve in the coming weeks. Chelsea’s owners which is a consortium led by American investor Todd Boehly still see Pochettino as someone who can restore the London side to their former glory. Sources say there is “no panic at Stamford Bridge just yet”.

Pochettino called out his Chelsea players to collectively "grow up" after the 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa condemned them to their worst top-flight start in 45 years. Todd Boehly backed Pochettino even after the loss against Villa as he said (via METRO), "Give me time because I didn’t see them after the game. They are disappointed they are so excited to build some project but of course, they feel disappointed. But at the same time, they need to support the plan."

There is added pressure on Pochettino after the influx of investment into the squad which saw Chelsea splash a reported £400million in the summer window. The Argentine signed a contract running until June 2025 but could be terminated early if these results continue. Chelsea next face Brighton & Hove Albion in the third round of the EFL Cup on Wednesday, September 27.
