Chelsea’s ambitious co-owner Todd Boehly would have expected more from Graham Potter and co.
That’s according to journalist Paul Brown, who believes that the co-owner will be disappointed in what he’s seen so far.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Brown said: “You do have to remember that Chelsea spent a lot of money in the summer, and I think they [the owners] were probably expecting a little bit more than what they’re getting from both some of their players and actually the manager right now.”
Pressure on Potter?
When Boehly made the major decision to call time on Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea tenure, pressure was the overwhelming emotion, and that was bound to transfer to Potter as he entered Stamford Bridge.
Seemingly it didn’t, and there was certainly a honeymoon period as the former Brighton boss stormed to gather five consecutive clean sheets from his first seven games, winning five of those games also.
Fast forward to the present day though and Potter now finds himself on the other end of the scale.
The side have failed to keep a clean sheet in seven games now and have failed to win in their last five Premier League outings, losing three in a row.
It does not look good at current, with this break coming at a good time for Potter, who has almost been saved by the bell in this instance.
He now has time to rectify the problems in his side, with pressure piling.
