A win against Liverpool will not be enough for Jose Mourinho to save his Chelsea job and he may not sack even if Chelsea lose to Liverpool on Saturday.
Jose Mourinho is in the news for all wrong reasons after his side suffered a string of terrible results and the Blues are 15th in the Premier League, just a touch short from the relegation zone.
At the moment they can forget about the tittle challenge or a top four finish this seasons, with a host of teams well below their class like Leicester City, West Ham and Crystal Palace playing well as a formidable unit. Also do not rule out Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspurs to benefit from the spoils.
At Chelsea’s hierarchy Roman Abrahamovic is extremely concerned about the conduct of the manager, whose recently got sent off against West Ham on Saturday. That is just the last of the string of events starting off from Eva Canerio issue during the match day one of the season.
At the moment, it is certain that the Portuguese manager with all his experience is unable to put it right and the latest defeat against Stoke in Capital One Cup is just the start of what to follow with him at helm in the coming months.
The players are extremely unhappy with the situation and despite repeated confirmation to the press that he has not lost the dressing room, this is not the case. There are also reports suggesting that many of the star players are already plotting for a move away from Stamford Bridge if Chelsea fails to finish inside top four season.
The owner Roman Abramovich is aware of the scenario and he doesnt not want a situation that will see his key players leave and threaten the winning culture.
The search is already on for a replacement with ex-Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti and the Dutch boss Guus Hiddink leading the race.
Both Carlo Ancelotti and Guss Hiddink have previous stints at the London club. Hiddink is remembered by Chelsea fans for their FA Cup win and an incredible 84.6% win ratio during a six month tenure in 2009 after Luiz Felipe Scolari was sacked.
While Carlo Ancelotti replaced Guss Hiddink for 2009-10 season guiding the club to the Premier League title, finishing the season with 103 goals, becoming the first team in the Premier League to score more than 100 goals in a season, since 1962-63 season.
