Mauricio Pochettino is under huge pressure from Board

Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping things go well from now. As he is under immense pressure due to Chelsea‘s poor performance.

Nkunku is Hope

‘Wait till Christopher Nkunku gets back and we will be alright’. This has been the prevailing mindset among many supporters during the whole season. What if, however, that is not the case?

Remember that Nkunku hasn’t participated in a league game in English football. Since leaving RB Leipzig for £52 million during the summer transfer window. Despite more than showing himself in Germany over the previous two seasons in the Bundesliga. With 36 goals and 21 assists, the 26-year-old will probably need some time to get used to the Premier League. Mauricio Pochettino needs him.

Not all players do. Some players adjust to it with ease. However, they are quite scarce.

In addition to this, Nkunku’s pre-season knee injury has kept him out of action since August 3, which is more than four months ago. Let’s add something else: Nkunku has a lot of expectations placed on him, and those expectations are growing with each game Chelsea loses.

Mauricio Pochettino Pressure

The Blues have suffered three straight Premier League away losses, and with each setback, Mauricio Pochettino is drawing more criticism from the team’s supporters. Following Chelsea’s 2-0 loss to Everton on Sunday, many called for the head coach to be fired after making fun of Pochettino and the Chelsea team at Goodison Park.

But as far as is aware, Chelsea does not currently have any intentions to fire Pochettino. The Blues intend to support their man because they really believe that the Argentine can improve things at Stamford Bridge.

However, sooner or later, the results must change or else his position at the club would undoubtedly become unsustainable. He knows full well that this season’s accomplishments on the pitch must be demonstrated. Even while Chelsea is undoubtedly going through a transitional phase, showing signs of improvement and success would help win over fans and maintain ownership backing.

When Nkunku does play again, Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping the France international can immediately make an impact for Chelsea. Between now and their next game, the Blues will have a little more of a rest in an absurdly busy time.
