Chelsea have turned things around and head into the game against Bournemouth with a chance to finish fifth.

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has given the strongest indication that he will be at the club next season by calling on fans to trust the process and back the team. 

The Argentinian has lost only a league game this year and his team has produced improved performances and results that have seen them in a strong position to end the season on a high.

One of the things Pochettino has been successful at doing is getting his team to win at Stamford Bridge, which has changed the atmosphere at home games. Individual improvement in previously struggling players like Noni Madueke and Nicolas Jackson has backed him as a man who is capable of getting the best out of a young group of players. 

Asked in his final press conference of the season what his message for the fans would be, the Chelsea boss only said he wanted them to trust in the team. 

Pochettino told reporters at Cobham: “My message is to trust in the process, to trust in the team. We feel the responsibility to deliver our job.” 

Finishing on a high

Only Manchester City and Arsenal have picked more points than Chelsea in the last seven games and there is a feeling that they could challenge for a top-four finish if they had more games.

Asked if there was a part of him that did not want the season to end, the Chelsea boss told LondonWorld: “Yes [we don't want it to end] but we are tired. But it is tough. The whole staff deserves a rest. Yes, it's true. The most important thing is that we start to compete in different ways.” 

A win against Bournemouth and a Tottenham defeat could see Pochettino’s side finish an impressive 5th.
