Chelsea’s technical director Christopher Vivell held an emergency meeting with Graham Potter on Tuesday amid calls from fans for the Chelsea boss to be sacked, according to Evening Standard.

The meeting reportedly took place at the club’s Cobham training ground on Tuesday with the aim of the meeting to address how Chelsea’s season is unravelling.

The meeting, which was described as a strategy meeting, also had sporting directors Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart in attendance.

Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali are not thought to have been present in a meeting of the “football operation” at the club.

Chelsea owners Boehly and Eghbali have continued to back Potter despite Chelsea’s poor form and have told senior staff to stick together after a calamitous few weeks.

Chelsea have no plans to sack Potter before Sunday’s trip to Tottenham, but it was accepted there is a lot to do to turn around a run of results that has sent their season into a tailspin.

Vivell, Potter and senior first-team staff in the room put on a united front in a bid to resolve the issues at the club, including the low confidence and morale of the squad.

Potter has been told to fight through calls for him to be sacked and has a full week to prepare for what feels like a crucial game against Tottenham.

Boehly is due to be at the Tottenham game, while Eghbali is set to attend matches against Leeds and Borussia Dortmund after that. Both were present for the Southampton defeat.

The Blues are languishing in 10th place in the Premier League, 11 points outside the top four.
