Graham Potter’s future will be in doubt if he fails to qualify in the top-four.
The former Brighton manager had a bright start to his Chelsea career recording three consecutive wins after drawing his first game against RB Salzburg.
But his future could be in doubt if Chelsea fails to qualify for the Champions League next season according to Simon Jordan.
“I think it’s a difficult time to come into a football club when they are going through an ownership change,” Jordan told talkSPORT.
“They were lucky against Palace, there was nothing in that game to get that result and I think the last two results are where he is beginning to get some understanding of what he has got around him. He is a good football manager, every single job he has taken on has been exponential growth.
“From the job that he did in Sweden to the job that he did in Swansea, to the job that he has done in Brighton, but this is the big leagues now. This is a very different dynamic, this is not Ostersunds, this is not Swansea, this is not Brighton, this is the big leagues.
“Now we have been told that this is a long-term project, he doesn’t need to get in the Champions League. I think they will get in the Champions League, but if they don’t we will see if the attitude changes.”
