Chelsea welcome London rivals Tottenham Hotspur to Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening. 

The Blues still hold hopes of qualifying for European football next term, despite Mauricio Pochettino enduring a difficult first season in charge.

The Argentine is still yet to win a trophy in English football and missed the chance to do so when the Blues were beaten by Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final in February.

Now, it has emerged that Pochettino is on trial for the rest of the season to assess whether he will remain in his job, according to Football Insider.

The report claims that the former Spurs boss will be assessed in the closing weeks of the season, with those in charge of the club gauging whether or not he is the right man to take the club forward.

Pochettino has failed to impress during his first season at Stamford Bridge

Since Todd Boehly and Clearlake took charge of the West London club in 2022, the Blues have struggled to recreate the success that they managed under previous ownership.

The American owners have sacked Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter since taking charge, and the report suggests that Pocchettino could also be dismissed.

Pochettino himself has no plans to leave Chelsea any time soon, the report claims, and he will therefore only depart Stamford Bridge if he is sacked.

This season the Blues have won just 13 of their 33 Premier League games, and they were beaten 5-0 by London rivals Arsenal last week.

The Argentinian has, however, had to cope with a significant number of injuries to key players, with the likes of Christopher Nkunku and club captain Reece James having both missed the vast majority of the campaign.
