Todd Boehly has backed Mauricio Pochettino as manager of Chelsea amid speculation around his future, saying he has been impressed by the team's upturn in form and "beautiful football."

"We've seen the last two and a half games, at least in the second half at Aston Villa [2-2 draw] and Tottenham and West Ham where we played just beautiful football," Boehly said.

"It was so fluid, it was exactly the way we drew it up, when we came out of the back, built up and moved up the pitch, [it was] very organised and the number of shots we had on board. In those two and a half games, you could really start to see what we were working on coming together.

"Even the commentary has changed over the last two and a half games. I've never seen anything change so quickly."

Pochettino guided Chelsea to the League Cup final in February, which they lost 1-0 in extra time to Liverpool, and also to the semifinals of the FA Cup last month, where Manchester City beat them 1-0.
