The campaign is only seven games old for Chelsea, and yet there's already growing pressure for new head coachMauricio Pochettino. The Blues have not been at their best so far when it comes to results, with just one win in the Premier League and a victory in the Carabao Cup to show for their hard work.
The Argentinian boss has been tasked with settling the chaos at Stamford Bridge, harnessing the potential of his young squad, while also accepting they may make mistakes. On top of that, there's the changing landscape of the club behind the scenes as the new ownership continues to settle things into their own project.
The idea set out by BlueCo after winning the race to takeover Chelsea in May last year was to create a self-sustaining elite team that can compete at the top level. Todd Boehly pointed towards the City Football Group and the Red Bull group of teams as the multi-club model he wished to pursue.
The purchase of Strasbourg in France came alongside roughly £1billion sunk into transfer fees and after a disappointing first season, Pochettino was deemed the man fit to guide the US investment towards their vision. On the pitch, there's been some positives as chances are being created, but unfortunately put down.
With just five points from their opening six league games, there's a growing discontent swirling among some fans about the direction of the side. With that in mind, it has led to some early calls for a change in head coach, despite the owners making the decision to back Pochettino at this stage.
