Pochettino was under pressure after consecutive top-flight defeats to Wolves and Liverpool, but the Blues bounced back with a confidence-boosting win at Villa Park in an FA Cup fourth-round replay on Wednesday.
The pressure on Pochettino would return, however, if Chelsea slip up against Crystal Palace, with Roy Hodgson’s side out of form and looking over their shoulder in the table.
The Eagles have only won three games since the end of September – against Burnley, Brentford and Sheffield United – and come into tonight’s fixture only five points above the bottom three.
