Mount signs, James role, new striker joins: Mauricio Pochettino’s dream Chelsea XI for 2023/24

Mauricio Pochettino looks set to become Chelsea’s new head coach. The Argentine has emerged as the front-runner for the role after Luis Enrique and Julian Nagelsmann both dropped out last week and now the former Tottenham boss is expected to be the new man in the dugout.

Although his true arrival isn’t likely to come until next season, the appointment would be a precursor for the new campaign as Frank Lampard continues to act as a placeholder in charge. For Pochettino it will be his first job in nearly 12 months after leaving Paris Saint-Germain.

Such is the crazy nature of the French giants even the bloated squad, fractured fanbase and undperforming players at Stamford Bridge could prove to be a walk in the park. That itself might be slight hyperbole but the point stands, Pochettino has been around the block after his time in Paris.

His relative success at Spurs – no trophy but their best manager in the modern era – was far from guaranteed when he walked through the door. It was a side without Gareth Bale and with a series of transfer mistakes to overturn (sound familiar?) as well as instilling an identity and culture that had been missing.

These are all factors that make him a good candidate for the pressure-cooker environment that Stamford Bridge serves up for its bosses. Especially as a boss of the old enemy, there will be little leeway afforded to Pochettino early on but that may not matter.

His pedigree as a coach that is able to develop players and get the best from his group is one that will attract Chelsea, who need to sell more than buy in the summer. With that said, there’s a strong group already at SW6 that could be of some immediate help.

Here’s just one way in which he could line-up come next season.
