Graham Potter has been under immense pressure in recent weeks as Chelsea boss, with the club’s winless run stretching to seven matches in all competitions. The Blues have been struggling to find any sort of form, and Potter’s future at the club is now in serious doubt.

The former Swansea City manager was appointed as Chelsea’s new head coach in July 2020, and was tasked with bringing a new style of play to the club. However, the team has failed to live up to expectations, and the pressure is now mounting on Potter to turn things around.

The Blues have lost five of their last seven matches, including a humiliating 5-2 defeat to West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League. This has seen the club slip to ninth in the table, and they are now in danger of missing out on a top-four finish.

The situation has become so dire that Potter is now facing two make-or-break matches in the coming weeks. The first is a crucial Premier League clash against Manchester United on Sunday, which could decide the fate of the club’s season. The second is a Champions League tie against Atletico Madrid, which could decide whether or not the Blues progress to the knockout stages.

Potter is well aware of the importance of these two matches, and he has been working hard to ensure that his team is ready for the challenge. He has been focusing on improving the team’s defensive structure, and has been encouraging his players to be more aggressive in attack.

The Chelsea boss has also been trying to instil a sense of belief in his players, and has been stressing the importance of taking the game to their opponents. He has also been trying to get the team to play with more freedom, and to express themselves on the pitch.

It remains to be seen whether Potter’s efforts will be enough to save his job, but the next two matches could be crucial in determining his future at the club. If the Blues can pick up positive results in both matches, then Potter could be given a stay of execution. However, if the team fails to deliver, then the pressure on the manager could become too much to bear.
