Chelsea suffered yet another defeat on Sunday as they were beaten 2-0 by Everton at Goodison Park. 

Midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure’s sixth goal of the season gave the hosts the lead on Merseyside and, despite the Blues’ dominance, they were unable to find an equaliser.

Youngster Lewis Dobbin then doubled the Toffees’ lead late on, inflicting a seventh Premier League loss of the season on Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

The result leaves Chelsea 12th in the Premier League table, but those in charge of the club are in no immediate rush to sack the Argentine, according to Football Insider.

Pochettino, 51, took charge of the Blues over the summer and inherited a huge playing squad.

Since taking charge of the club last summer, owner Todd Boehly has spent more than £1 billion on new signings.

Pochettino’s job is safe for now despite Chelsea’s dismal run of form

During the recent summer transfer window several senior players – including Mateo Kovacic, Kai Havertz and N’Golo Kante – all departed Stamford Bridge.

Several of the players that were signed by Chelsea are young and relatively inexperienced, including midfield duo Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo, purchased from Benfica and Brighton and Hove Albion respectively for a combined fee in excess of £220 million.

Since taking charge of Chelsea over the summer, Pochettino has overseen five wins, four draws, and seven defeats in the Premier League, as well as three routine victories in the early rounds of the Carabao Cup.

The report claims that former Tottenham Hotspur boss Pochettino retains the support of those in charge of the club and is ‘undergoing a long-term project’ in West London.

During former owner Roman Abramovich’s reign, Chelsea became notorious for sacking managers frequently, and Boehly himself has dismissed both Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter during his relatively short time in the capital.
