January 14, (THEWILL) – Chelsea are currently going through a difficult period on the field, with seven defeats in their last ten games and elimination from both domestic cup competitions, a tough place for Graham Potter.
The team is currently in 10th place in the Premier League table and the manager has admitted that he is struggling to see the team’s current slump coming to an end anytime soon. He has identified some of the problems at Chelsea but conceded that there is no quick fix to their current dilemma.
Adding to the pressure has been an incredible list of injuries to key players, with Potter regularly without around ten first-team names and seeing no end in sight after Denis Zakaria joined the party on the treatment table.
On top of the injuries, Chelsea lost new signing Joao Felix to a three-game suspension after he was sent off on his debut for the club against Fulham, and Potter admitted the different problems are getting tough to keep up with.
“We’ve lost Reece, Wesley, Raheem and Christian so it’s almost like ‘back to the drawing board’,” he said. “It’s different things, it feels like you’ve taken one step and then all of a sudden something happens. I’m sure our supporters don’t want to hear that. They want to see better results and better performances but it’s the position we’re in and we’re suffering and trying our best to improve it.”
