The Blues have now parted ways with Potter few months after arriving in London

Chelsea have officially terminated the contract of Graham Potter, the club’s official website announced on Sunday evening.

Potter took over from Tomas Tuchel but he has failed to lead the club to its desired target especially in Premier League this season.

The Blues surprisingly sunk to a new low on Saturday as the side dropped into the bottom half of the Premier League table with a 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa.

Former Arsenal boss Unai Emery oversaw the victory for the away side at Stamford Bridge as Ollie Watkins pounced on a defensive error from the Blues.

John McGinn then doubled the lead with a long-range effort as the home crowd were left bemoaning missed chances and backline mistakes.

The result only added extra pressure to manager Graham Potter, who would’ve been forgiven for thinking his side had turned a corner after registering three wins on the bounce across all competitions last month.

The club then announced Potter’s sack on Sunday evening and former Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann is expected to fill the void in the coming days.

“Chelsea would like to thank Graham for all his efforts and contribution and wish him well for the future,” a club statement announced.
