(Video) – Mauricio Pochettino applauds when presented with stat on Chelsea’s form

Mauricio Pochettino appears to be starting to get things right at Chelsea following an up and down first season in charge.

The Argentine signed a two year contract last summer with the option of a third, has been heavily criticised by sections of the Chelsea fanbase, with many wanting him sacked at various points in the season.

To his credit the 52-year-old has really turned things round, and since Boxing Day only Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool have taken more points in the Premier League than the Blues.

On form, Chelsea have been a top four side for the second half of the season, but as Pochettino put it they have paid the price for a poor first ten games of the season, which saw them only win three games.

Pochettino has demonstrated a willingness to be tactically flexible in recent weeks which has made a big difference to performance levels, and his in game management has improved as the season has gone on.

When presented with the stat of Chelsea’s form in his pre match press conference Pochettino smiled and applauded the room.

He’ seems a very likeable person and certainly deserves another crack at Stamford Bridge next season.
