Chelsea boss Graham Potter has been warned finishing outside the top four at Chelsea is a sackable offence.

Currently, the Blues are eighth, six points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and a huge 16 points behind leaders Arsenal.

Speaking on talkSPORT, former Aston Villa and England Gabriel Agbonlahor said: “If you look at the table, they’re 16 points behind Arsenal.

“That is unacceptable, to be 16 points behind Arsenal. If you look at the top four at the moment, they’re six points behind Spurs, Fulham are two points behind them.

“Yesterday was a must win because if they didn’t, they don’t look like finishing in the top six let alone the top four. The pressure is on for these teams, because Newcastle aren’t going anywhere, Brighton aren’t going anywhere, to get in the top four this season is a massive achievement for every team besides maybe Manchester City.”

Agbonlahor added: “It’s crazy. A club like Chelsea, with this owner they’ve got, fifth or sixth, it’s not going to happen. It’s a sackable offence. I feel like you’re getting sacked if you don’t finish in the top four for Chelsea, Graham Potter.”
