Not much has changed with just one win in the 10 games Lampard has been in charge of so far and the team is now only in a race to catch 11th-placed Crystal Palace. Chelsea have never finished behind the Eagles in Premier League history.

Argentine Pochettino has signed a three-year deal and will begin work as early as next week as Chelsea looks to build from scratch after a disappointing first year under new ownership.

The announcement is expected to be made once the final game of the season is concluded with Chelsea looking to say goodbye to some players who have been at the club for a while.

Captain César Azpilicueta is expected to leave despite having a year left on his contract while Mason Mount who has been spotted at Stamford Bridge is also likely to leave after failing to agree a new deal.

The likes of Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic could also leave the club having fallen down the pecking order and new players brought in to form the foundation of a new Chelsea.

Pochettino has been credited with building both Southampton and Tottenham from a position of distraction and will be expected to apply the same principles to a Chelsea side who have looked a pale shadow of their former outstanding self.
