Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay told the BBC on Sunday morning ahead of the game with Manchester City that Chelsea will judge the performance of manager Carlo Ancelotti at the end of the season and "review" his position at the club.
"Carlo has a contract until end of 2012," Gourlay told the BBC. "Let's see where we are at the end of May then we'll judge the coach and other people at the football club."
Ancelotti has been constantly linked with a move away from West London following the brutal sacking of assistant Ray Wilkins and the poor run of results that followed. A whole host of clubs would gladly welcome Carletto with Roma reportedly waiting in the wings to snap up their former fan favourite.
Should the man Chelsea fans dubbed "King Carlo" leave his post, here is a look at some of the potential candidates for the job.
