How can Mauricio Pochettino still revive Chelsea?

Throughout the season, Chelsea have consistently taken one step forward and two steps back. Today, his campaign is once again on the brink of disaster.

Chelsea are no stranger to the so-called yo-yo effect, with 20 years of trophies punctuated by down seasons – infamously finishing 10th in 2015-16 and 5th during Antonio Conte’s ill-fated second campaign in 2017 -18. But this time it’s different. After experiencing their worst campaign in decades under the leadership of Thomas Tuchel, Graham Potter and Frank Lampard, the team did not experience the rebound that many hoped for when Mauricio Pochettino was appointed as manager and he been responsible for ushering in a new era.

After falling to 12th place at the end of the 2022-23 financial year, the Blues now find themselves in 11th place, with a series of catastrophic results and general form which seem to have plunged the club back into the malaise that had invaded before the arrival of the Argentine tactician.

In 2024, the club seems to have passed the point of no return, whereas in the past it often had to manage to get back on the right path after a failed season. This time, the club is again in mid-table and risks missing European qualification. The players are apparently still disillusioned despite the big summer cleanup supposed to boost their morale. The atmosphere at Stamford Bridge is toxic, fans are coughing up blood from the stands and confidence in the free-spending Boehly-Clearlake ownership duo is crumbling.
