Following the dismissal of Thomas Tuchel as Chelsea manager, the Blues are being linked with a number of managers as his replacement.

Brighton manager Graham Potter is one of the early frontrunner to take over as Chelsea manager.

Meanwhile, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has warned Potter that he might be promised a lengthy stay at Stamford Bridge to build a project, but could easily be sacked at a club like Chelsea.

“It’s a very ruthless club and I’m not sure he is the right fit – maybe Chelsea are saying they want to do things differently in the future in terms of having a coach in charge rather than a manager or they do things behind the scenes differently,” said Carragher.

“But if I was Graham Potter, I would find that very hard to believe that they’re going to do things differently.

“They’ve just got rid of a manager six games into the season. Of course, it’s a huge step up in his managerial career and Chelsea are still one of the top clubs.

“They are still world champions right now, but you fear for Graham Potter that he’ll be in the same boat as every other Chelsea manager has for the last 10 years, unless he gets results instantly they’ll be getting themselves another new manager in 12 months.”
