Todd Boehly continues to support Graham Potter despite Chelsea's decline

Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital, the new owners of Chelsea, hand-picked Potter as a successor for Thomas Tuchel, committing to a long-term relationship with the former Brighton manager.

Graham Potter’s immediate future at Chelsea is not in jeopardy, according to “allfootballleague,” but there is a consensus at Stamford Bridge that the club’s performance must improve rapidly.

Although Chelsea expected a transitional season, the Blues have slipped worse than anticipated. Six of Potter’s team’s previous nine matches have been in defeat, and they are now ninth in the Premier League, with Champions League qualifying seemingly out of reach.

Sources have verified to “allfootballleague” that those in power at Chelsea have made it obvious that things need to change quickly. Understandably, fans have gotten disgruntled, and there is enormous pressure on Potter from fans.

Potter has been told that Boehly trusts him and that he will be allowed to solve the team’s present difficulties.

Potter’s attempt to rebound from consecutive losses to Manchester City starts on Thursday with a short journey to high-flying Fulham. In January, Crystal Palace and Liverpool are also on the schedule.

Todd Boehly Chelsea will play Fulham, West Ham, Southampton, and Tottenham in the month of February. On February 15, they will travel to Borussia Dortmund to kick off their Champions League knockout campaign.

The Chelsea administration anticipates a significant improvement in results over this time, and new players will be brought in to assist Potter.

Joao Felix will join Chelsea on a six-month loan from Atletico Madrid, while the Blues also attempt to acquire Marcus Thuram from Gladbach before his contract expires in the summer.
