Potter’s side were subsequently punished for their individual errors.
Chelsea had a woeful season so far under Graham Potter. The Blues suffered another defeat against Man City to see an early exit from FA Cup.
Graham Potter has told his squad to remain united to get overcome this tough period of suffering regular defeats. Chelsea are yet to win a game this year.
A Riyad Mahrez double and goals from Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez knocked Chelsea out of the FA fourth round. Man City will face Arsenal in the next round.
Potter’s side were subsequently punished for their individual errors, which included giving two penalties after Kai Havertz punched the ball away in the box and Kalidou Koulibaly fouled Foden late on.
The former Brighton manager has the full support of the club, which is in transition and filled with injury problems that aren’t helping matters on the pitch.
Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali will be watching on with a keen eye but are in it for the long haul.
“Like I’ve said, you can make excuses and look for reasons or you can say it’s not good enough,” Potter said.
“Both of those answers are correct so we have to keep improving and stick together because clearly we’re suffering as a football club and it’s not nice at all. That’s where we’re at at the moment.”
Pep Guardiola offered his support to Potter after telling Boehly and Co to give him more time at Stamford Bridge.
“I would say to Todd Boehly, it was a pleasure to meet him, but give him time. Give him time.
“The second part is about what he is. All the managers need time and he is right. At Barca, I didn’t need two seasons because I had Messi.”
