Former Chelsea star, Chris Sutton has claimed that the club’s owner Todd Boehly is already losing patience with manager Graham Potter.
According to him, there are question marks over Potter’s future at Stamford Bridge.
Sutton said this following the Blues 1-0 defeat at home to Manchester City on Thursday night.
Chelsea remained 10th in the Premier League table, 10 points off the top four following the defeat.
Potter was hired as a replacement for Thomas Tuchel in September 2022 after Boehly sacked the German.
Chelsea spent around £280m on new players ahead of the 2022-23 campaign and Sutton has suggested Boehly may decide to sack Potter any time soon.
“It’s been difficult for Graham Potter to come but this is a Chelsea team that simply aren’t doing well enough.
“How long will Todd Boehly give Graham Potter? It’s so difficult to see where this is going.
“The question is how much can Todd Boehly tolerate? Chelsea go to City at the weekend in the FA Cup – if they go out there, I just wonder whether they will view this as a job too big for Graham Potter,” he said.
