Issues Pochettino Must Resolve to Get Chelsea back to their Best after his hiring was confirmed

 Mauricio Pochettino has been appointed as the new Chelsea manager, replacing Frank Lampard starting from July 1. Pochettino's arrival comes after a disappointing season for the Blues, marked by poor results and a lackluster performance. Todd Boehly, the co-owner and majority shareholder, has invested £600 million this season and faces important decisions regarding the bloated squad.

Below are the issues that must be solved to get the Blues back to competing:

1. Work on fitness levels

Lampard criticized Chelsea's fitness levels upon his arrival, attributing their poor form to a disjointed pre-season and a demanding schedule. Pochettino's early appointment allows him to plan a comprehensive preseason and assess the team's situation during the intervening period.

2. Establish a consistent system

Chelsea experimented with various systems throughout the season, reflecting a chaotic campaign. Pochettino has a history of deploying formations such as 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3, and 3-4-3, adapting to attacking and defensive situations. Implementing a stable and effective system will be crucial for the team's success.

3. Get Mykhaylo Mudryk Firing

Mudryk, the Ukrainian winger, has struggled to meet expectations since his high-profile move in January. With no goals and only glimpses of his previous form, he will need time to prove himself. Pochettino is likely to prioritize the experience of Sterling on the left wing, meaning Mudryk must compete for a spot in the team.

4. Address Romelu Lukaku's future

Lukaku will return from Inter, but his future at Stamford Bridge remains uncertain after a tumultuous previous season. Tensions reportedly existed between Lukaku and his former manager, Tuchel. However, Pochettino's arrival could provide an opportunity for reconciliation, especially considering Chelsea's lack of goals this season
