Graham Potter, Chelsea, 2022/23

Chelsea manager Graham Potter has been sacked by the club after just six months in charge.

The Blues find themselves in an unfamiliar position in the Premier League, struggling to even make the top half of the standings. Sitting in 11th following a 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday, their prospect of Champions League via the league remains all-but over.

In normal circumstances, this would be alarming for the club, but after a record spend in both the summer and January which totals more than £600 million, it is thoroughly embarrassing. And owner Todd Boehly has taken the decision that enough is enough, and Potter is gone.

Fingers were being pointed at Potter, who arrived at the club in September following Thomas Tuchel’s sacking and has oversaw a distinctly below-par run of results in his tenure.

It was expected that the former Brighton manager would be able to turn things around at Chelsea, but it didn't happen, and he has paid with his job.

So how does his record read, now that his time is over?

Graham Potter’s Chelsea results

Potter had a positive record in that he has won more games than he has lost - but only just. The 47-year-old has overseen 31 fixtures, 11 of which have now ended in defeat. In contrast, he has claimed 12 wins in the Stamford Bridge dugout.

Before going on a three-match winning streak before the March international break, Chelsea had only won one of their 11 fixtures in 2023 – a 1-0 home success over Crystal Palace.

Since then, it has gone sharply downhill for Potter and Chelsea, and the 2-0 defeat to Unai Emery's men proved to be his last match in charge.
