Chelsea’s new defeat against Manchester City this Sunday in the FA Cup (4-0) further weakens the position of its manager Graham Potter. And this, despite the declarations of intent of its bosses.
Graham Potter was recruited for the long term at Chelsea according to the owners of the London club. The latter, in the days preceding the meeting against Manchester City, had hinted that even a non-qualification for the next Champions League would not be synonymous with dismissal for the manager of the Blues. But the day after the new disappointment against the Citizens (4-0), the question arises again concerning the immediate future of the English technician.
A season already over for Chelsea
Now knocked out of domestic cups and dropped in the Premier League, Chelsea sees its season almost over in terms of ambition. But more than these disappointments, it is this new defeat and a heavy score that could tip the scales. In the last eight rounds of Premier League games, Chelsea have the fewest wins and scored the fewest goals. Brentford, Brighton and Nottingham Forest are among the teams that have taken points from them during this streak. It is their worst league run since 2010, to go with their first FA Cup third round exit since 1999, Sky Sports recall.
Fans demand Tuchel’s return
Since taking over as head of the Chelsea team, Graham Potter had to do with a band he didn’t compose. The Blues were also not spared from injuries: “I have never experienced anything like this” the manager said a week ago. But the supporters do not understand how such a successful team under Thomas Tuchel could have fallen so low. Hence the chants for a return of the former owner and former manager. The crisis is here. And the American owners will have to be strong if they decide to keep their current manager.
