They currently sit 14th in the Premier League table with just five points from six games.

That's despite the fact that over £1billion has been spent on players since Todd Boehly and Eghbali took over last summer.

Boehly allegedly tore into the Chelsea squad following a 2-1 defeat to Brighton in April.

He spent an HOUR ranting at the players before singling out a senior star.

However, Pochettino has made it clear that he is perfectly comfortable with the owners entering the dressing room.

He said: "I like when the owners come. In all my career as a coach, at Espanyol, Southampton, Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain before and after. I think it is good that the owner came to the dressing room.

"It's the way they approach the player is important, if they are in a good way then they are very welcome. After my press conference after the game against Aston Villa, they came and chill with us, like normally.

"Also against Liverpool, Luton, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa, they came with Paul and Laurence and Behdad.

"We talk about the game. I don't see it in a bad way. For me, it's good always if they share with us and they can say hello to the players. It would be different if they came for a speech or something, but with the way that they came of course they are very welcome.

"They own the club, they can do whatever they want. We are so glad they came and shared with us – even when it's good things and we won the game, but even on Sunday where we lost and we are suffering."
