Chelsea fans called for the return of Roman Abramovich and Thomas Tuchel following Chelsea’s 4-0 FA Cup defeat to Manchester City.
Chelsea are already out of the Carabao Cup and FA Cup, with the Blues 10th in the Premier League.
Graham Potter – who took over in September after Tuchel’s sacking – admitted that he can sympathise with Chelsea’s fans.
“Clearly we are suffering and it’s not nice at all,” Potter said. “We can’t do anything other than do our jobs better and work harder.
“You can understand the fans’ frustration and we respect that. There are always other opinions and criticism because results haven’t been positive.
“We’re going through a bad moment and sometimes when you have them you need something to blame. We have to stick together and keep working.”
