SAD: Chelsea players are ‘not expected to train on Monday’ as pressure mounts to sack Graham Potter.

Chelsea players will not be expected to train this day being Monday as there are growing uncertainties about Graham Potter and his stay bat the club and this now is calling for a sack and also the players are not in a very good place to still see things going the way they are.


According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s reporter Nathan Gissing, Chelsea are not due to train on Monday at Cobham – a somewhat surprising development.

It’s understood they will be given a second day off to reflect on last weekend’s lacklustre and toothless display before the trip to Tottenham next weekend.

Despite full confidence he will turn things around, Potter finally conceded that he was feeling the heat after the defeat to Southampton.


“I am not stupid or naive,” he said. “My job is to keep going and keep helping and supporting the team and take that criticism.”

“You can only be yourself and try your best while being yourself.

“I get it that when you are losing, there’s always something you should do or change. I have always been this way and it has gotten me to this point but, at the same time, I know people want something different.”

Chelsea are now 10th in the Premier League and their hopes of finishing inside the top-four have seemingly vanished.

The Blues are 11 points behind fourth-place Tottenham, although they do have a game in hand on Antonio Conte’s side.

Failure to win at Tottenham on Sunday in the derby will surely spell the end of Chelsea’s faint Champions League hopes.

Potter’s side also face a fight to turn around their Champions League last 16 tie with Borussia Dortmund after losing the first leg 1-0 in Germany on Wednesday
