Chelsea manager Graham Potter could be facing a critical two-game period that will make or break his time in the Stamford Bridge dugout.
Chelsea’s season went from bad to worse over the weekend with a 2-0 defeat away to Tottenham extending a winless run to six games, and ensuring they have now only won two games in their last 15.
According to reports, he now faces a make or break period over the next two games, with owners and senior players now growing concerned with the rut they are stuck in. However, a conflicting report from The Athletic instead claims that Chelsea are not planning to sack Potter and will continue to give him time turn to turn things around.
The report from the Telegraph states that as well as senior players and owners being worried about whether or not Potter can turn things around, new signings have been shocked by just how much pressure they are under, while those who have been omitted from matchday squads are becoming irked.
Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly was at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to watch the weekend’s loss, and will be joined in attendance by his fellow controlling co-owner Behdad Eghbali for the next two games against Leeds United and Borussia Dortmund, which are both at home.
It is believed that failure to win any of their next two matches would create a situation where the club and players feel there is no way back.
