There ‘remains a strong chance’ Chelsea make big decision that will annoy some fans

Chelsea could reportedly make one big decision this summer that will certainly annoy a section of The Blues fanbase going forward.

It will be the summer of big decisions for many football clubs coming up, and Chelsea are certainly going to be one of those clubs.

EXCLUSIVE! ‘Strong chance’ Chelsea stick with Pochettino, Chalobah ‘happy’ at Chelsea but will leave for one condition, Sterling wants to stay, Updates on Olise, Osimhen, Sesko, Ferguson, Kerkez, more…

They will have a review of things at the end of the season, and one of them will be manager Mauricio Pochettino to see how that is going. It’s expected to be a two-way review, so Pochettino can also decide what he wants to do moving forward and if he thinks this is working or not.

Personally, I believe it will all depend on where Chelsea finish this season now and whether they gain European qualification or not. I think if they don’t then some serious questions will be asked and Pochettino may either walk or be sacked. But if they get Europe, I think they might be more willing to stick with him, despite a section of Chelsea’s fans wanting Pochettino sacked right now.

Insider Ben Jacobs believes though, that there is now a strong chance that Pochettino remains at Chelsea going into next season.

In his latest Chelsea column for SPTC, Jacobs said: ‘There remains a strong chance Chelsea will stick with Pochettino. It was such a thorough process to appoint him, and he’s taken Chelsea to a League Cup Final and pretty close to an FA Cup one. And he may yet secure a sixth-placed finish.

‘The owners will also be looking at data, including expected points and big chances created (and sadly missed) as well as the league form in the second-half of the season.

‘Fans may naturally point to games like the 2-2 draws with Burnley and Sheffield United on the current unbeaten Premier League run, or question tactical decisions. But Chelsea’s owners will try to be as ‘dispassionate’ as possible when reviewing Pochettino. To be clear, that doesn’t mean they don’t care or aren’t passionate about the club. It means they will decide what’s best without letting emotion cloud their judgement.

‘And that means looking at the long-term project, the young squad, the data, the difference a summer window might make, the instability change could create to both the club and dressing room (who like Pochettino and trust him) and, as importantly, understanding Pochettino’s own perspective.’
