Mauricio Pochettino will be under massive pressure if Chelsea don’t beat Leicester this weekend in the FA Cup.

He just can’t lose that game.

Their league positioning means there are lots of question marks over this Chelsea team, in terms of what they’re known for and how they’re going to finish. They’ve got some unbelievable talent but they still haven’t found a way to be consistent, so questions will continue to get thrown at them.

If they won a trophy it would obviously get him out of the predicament of the league position, but if this draw doesn’t go well then the pressure will increase.

If the fans want to keep changing managers every two weeks then that’s their call, but ultimately the fans don’t know all of the things that are being worked out in a football club either.
