Jose Mourinho is claimed to be set for the sack this weekend, if his Chelsea side lose to rivals Liverpool, the Metro reports.
The Blues lost to London rivals West Ham this weekend, leaving the club down in 15th position in the Premier League, 11 points behind leaders Manchester City.
Chelsea have lost five matches already this year, conceding 19 goals in the process, two more losses than they had in the entire last term.
Mourinho is now said to be under pressure to keep his job, despite signing a new contract only this summer, tying him to the club until 2019.
The Portuguese boss will be in line for a monster pay-off should he be fired, with two replacement claimed to be lined up should he be removed.
Carlo Ancelotti and Guus Hiddink are both said to be in the running for the job, with both having worked at the club previously.
