I think Mauricio Pochettino can get Chelsea back to the top and he has a magical player to help

Eden Hazard “loves” Mauricio Pochettino and has emphatically backed the Chelsea head coach to succeed at the club. Pochettino has been at Stamford Bridge for seven months now but has already faced different spells of pressure.

The pressure on the Argentine has slightly eased after recent games, with Chelsea unbeaten in their last three matches in all competitions. After back-to-back victories against Aston Villa and Crystal Palace, the Blues picked up a really impressive point away at champions Manchester City at the weekend

For the club, sacking Pochettino has never been close, as reported by football.london last month. Chelsea have always seen the Argentine as the right man to lead the club’s ambitious project, that is going to require some time before we see the end results.

For Pochettino, it has been about consistency. He has had a lack of it from his players thus far this season, but in recent matches, the head coach has gotten what he asked for in that regard, with Chelsea stepping it up at the right time. If he can continue to get consistency out of his players, then that is undeniably ‘progress’ – something the owners need to see on a frequent basis.

Hazard believes his former club are on the right track under Pochettino. The 33-year-old, who retired from professional football just over 12 months ago, is completely behind the Chelsea head coach but also thinks the Premier League is incredibly challenging right now.

Speaking to former Chelsea teammate Jon Obi Mikel, on the Obi One Podcast, Hazard said: “As a Chelsea fan, you want them to be first. You want them to win every game. I think they have a good manager, I love Pochettino. I think he can bring the team back to where it should be, but the Premier League is so hard.”
