Former Tottenham striker, Darren Bent, has declared that Chelsea boss, Mauricio Pochettino, will be sacked before Christmas.
Bent believes the Argentine will be dismissed in no time if he fails in his effort to stabilize things at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have spent over £1 billion in the last three transfer windows, including over £500 million in the summer.
But they have failed to improve from where they were last season when they finished 12th in the table.
Pochettino’s side has played six games, winning just one and losing three, including Sunday’s 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa.
They currently sit in 14th place in the fledgling table, just four points above the relegation zone.
“Now, [Graham] Potter was supposed to be the one that rebuilt Chelsea but yet it was getting that bad they went, ‘No, pull the plug.’
“I almost feel like with Pochettino, if this doesn’t get better, they can say all they want about, ‘Yeah we’ll give him time, he’s got to rebuild the squad.’
“If Chelsea, come Christmas time, are bottom half of the table and I’m talking like halfway between bottom and top ten, they might have to make a change,” he told talkSPORT.
