Chelsea boss Graham Potter could be sacked if Chelsea lose to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, according to Paul Merson.
“People think Potter isn’t the right man for the job, but I think he is,” Merson wrote for Sky Sports.
“For me, I think give him time. I don’t see it changing too quickly. I look at the players and I don’t get it. This Sunday is Chelsea’s biggest game of the season – it’s Tottenham.
“If he loses this one I’m not sure there is a way back because the fans will go ballistic. This game can change everything though – if Chelsea beat Spurs he can also be a hero.”
“I think he needs time,” he added. “I’m not sure these are his players, that’s the major problem. I can’t imagine in my wildest dreams these are his players.
“A lot of the players at Chelsea are the same, but no better than what was there before. You buy players to improve a squad and that hasn’t happened. I would give him until next season to have a pre-season, I just don’t know how it’s going to work with these players.”
