Chelsea’s plans for Pochettino revealed

Chelsea defeated Aston Villa in the FA Cup on Wednesday, putting on perhaps their greatest performance of the year.

After losing 4-2 to Wolves at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, Mauricio Pochettino’s team was jeered off the field. However, the Blues bounced back with a convincing 3-0 victory over the Villans, securing a fifth-round matchup with Leeds United.

At Villa Park, Conor Gallagher gave the visitors an early lead before Nicolas Jackson, fresh off the Africa Cup of Nations, headed in a second.

Then, in the second half, Enzo Fernandez scored a magnificent free kick to seal Chelsea’s victory and secure their spot in the competition’s round of five.

Pochettino needs the outcome badly because he hasn’t impressed since taking over in SW6.

Chelsea will evaluate the Argentine’s status after the conclusion of the current season, according to 90min.

Following the departure of temporary manager Frank Lampard, who had himself followed Graham Potter after a catastrophic term in command, Pochettino arrived at Stamford Bridge last summer.

Although Chelsea’s first league game under the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur ended in a draw, the team has only won nine of its 23 games and is currently ranked 11th in the top flight.

It is said that the West London club’s management had always intended to evaluate the manager’s role following the conclusion of his first season in command.

The Blues have won 16 of their 32 games this season in all competitions, including a triumph over Newcastle United via penalty shootout on their way to the Carabao Cup final.

Pochettino may have a better chance of holding his position past this summer if he can lead his team to win over Liverpool in the championship game at Wembley.
