Despite facing pressure due to a lackluster first half of the season, Pochettino received a boost with a convincing 3-1 FA Cup victory over Aston Villa on Tuesday, showcasing Chelsea’s potential. However, dropping into the bottom half of the Premier League table ahead of an important February, including the Carabao Cup final against Liverpool, emphasizes the challenges ahead.

Sources had indicated to 90min before the Villa win that Pochettino’s position is not immediately under threat. Those in charge at Stamford Bridge recognize the need for patience with a young squad, acknowledging Pochettino’s challenges in fielding his strongest lineup due to injuries and allowing younger players time to adapt to the Premier League.

Upon Pochettino’s arrival last year, an agreement for a “two-way appraisal” this summer was established, allowing both Chelsea’s owners and Pochettino to discuss the club’s direction. While Pochettino signed a three-year contract, only the first two seasons are guaranteed, with the third year being a club option.

Chelsea’s preference is to complete the season with Pochettino at the helm, aiming for long-term success. Contingency plans, however, involve considerations for potential replacements, with due diligence undertaken, although no concrete discussions have taken place.

Despite links to Jose Mourinho, available after leaving Roma, he is not seen as a likely appointment. Bayer Leverkusen’s Xabi Alonso, Brighton’s Roberto De Zerbi, and Sporting’s Ruben Amorim are admired, but discussions are on hold while Pochettino remains in the role. The owners have a four-transfer-window plan, and Chelsea officials aim to judge the manager’s performance fairly after the fourth and final window, with a desire to secure a prominent striker like Napoli’s Victor Osimhen in the upcoming summer.
