Graham Potter has been relieved of his duties by Chelsea after Saturday’s disastrous 2-0 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa.

Potter came under criticism after he failed to get the best out of a squad that had been reinforced over two transfer windows as owners Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital spent over €600 million on new players. Bruno Saltor will take charge as interim head coach, with Chelsea set to host Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night before travelling to Wolves next weekend.

Potter, who left Brighton for Chelsea in September, had repeatedly stated that despite the club’s struggles he felt he had the full support of the owners at Stamford Bridge.

The Chelsea boss had signed a long-term deal at the club in September, replacing Thomas Tuchel at the helm after Todd Boehly opted to axe the Champions League winner after defeat to Dinamo Zagreb.
