• Chelsea Beaten At Home By Southampton As Graham Potter Continues To Make Excuses
  • Can Chelsea Afford To Give Graham Potter More Time

Another day, another Chelsea loss under Graham Potter, it’s almost becoming a norm these days at the club. Following a midweek loss to Dortmund, Graham Potter’s Chelsea were favourites to beat 20th placed Southampton, but somehow The Blues still managed to lose at home.

Can Chelsea Afford To Give Graham Potter More Time?


Fans are now unanimously calling for the former Brighton manager to be sacked, but it looks like the new owners will give Graham Potter more time at the club, even if he continues his horrendous form.

“After a 1-0 defeat at home, any criticism you get is understandable, We’ve had a tough period and are integrating young players into the Premier League. When results don’t go your way, it’s tough.” “I’m not arrogant enough to say that their opinion isn’t worth articulating. My job is to help the team and work through a team period.”

The former Brighton manager keeps making fresh excuses for results, as Chelsea’s hope of UCL football for next season is realistically over. With 5 wins in their last 20, Chelsea look like a team that will miss out on European action all together next season.

Can Chelsea Afford To Give Graham Potter Time?

This season’s top 4 dreams are almost over for Chelsea as a club, but that is not the real price of giving a manager that struggles to inspire players more time. The real pain will come from the confidence of the new stars that Chelsea just invested in.

The likes of Enzo Fernández, Mykhailo Mudryk, Madueke, and Fofana are beginning to look just as ordinary as the much criticized established guys at the club. Enzo Fernández looked out of position and out of ideas against Southampton. Mudryk could not affect the game as he struggled to find combinations down the left in attack, and Potter would have dented Fofana’s confidence after substituting him at half-time. Yes, the owners can give Potter time, but if the English manager continues his horrendous form, it will cost Chelsea more than European Football, time, and money.
