Decision-makers at Chelsea disagree about Graham Potter’s destiny as manager
Todd Boehly, the club’s chairman, continues to back the previous manager of Brighton & Hove Albion. But some club officials question whether he has the power to save their campaign. With 14 points dividing them from the top four after 24 games, Chelsea is 10th in the Premier League.
The outcomes of their upcoming matches against Leeds United and Borussia Dortmund may determine his future. Only two of the Blues’ last 15 meetings in all competitions have ended in victories. The first game of their Champions League round of 16 matchup against the Bundesliga team ended in a 1-0 loss for them.
They would end the season without any hardware if they failed to win the game on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge. For Potter, a victory over Leeds United tomorrow would be very helpful. According to reports, the players no longer back him, with some of them having doubts about his methods and credentials as a coach.
Nothing, however, suggests that Chelsea players have put down their instruments. The squad has had trouble scoring goals, so failing to bring in a striker in January could have disastrous results. Only three teams have scored fewer goals than Chelsea among those outside the drop zone.
To keep his position, he needs his men to be fully engaged. The former Swansea City manager improved his image by performing well in his last three positions. But he is finding that the Chelsea position is too big for him, so he must start producing results right away.
