Chelsea: Key update emerges over Graham Potter’s future
Chelsea manager Graham Potter will likely be sacked if he doesn’t get positive results in the next two matches, according to reliable journalist Matt Law.
The Lowdown: Potter on the edge
The Blues find themselves in a wretched run of form at the moment, with pressure growing hugely on Potter after coming in and struggling as manager.
Last Sunday’s 2-0 defeat away to bitter rivals Tottenham was another low point in Chelsea’s campaign and there is an increasing feeling that a change is needed.
The club have remained loyal to Potter until now but a new update suggests that patience is now wearing thin.
The Latest: Next two games huge
Writing on Twitter, The Telegraph‘s Law claimed that the next two games will essentially be make-or-break for the 47-year-old:
“Chelsea’s owners continue to back Graham Potter but there is now a growing feeling that the next two games will be make or break for him. It’s not just the owners’ faith that is being tested either.”
The Verdict: Matter of time?
Potter really does feel like a man on the edge at this point, and while Chelsea have shown him some loyalty so far, results simply can’t continue to be so poor, with just one win coming their way since the turn of the year.
This update makes it fairly clear that the west Londoners must pick up two wins from the upcoming matches at home to Leeds United and Borussia Dortmund, or that will be the end of the Englishman.
Failing to beat the Whites would be bitterly disappointing, while a Champions League exit at the hands of Dortmund would leave Chelsea with very little to play for this season.
In truth, it does now feel like a matter of time until Potter’s sacking, barring a miraculous turnaround, with the appointment one that just hasn’t worked out.
