Chelsea Makes a U-turn| Potter to Stay and Big Name Flops to Leave the Club

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea's big-name flops could be on their way out as co-owner Todd Boehly looks to put an end to "player power" and support manager Graham Potter.

The report comes after the club's 2-1 defeat to Fulham on Thursday left them sitting in tenth place with just one win in nine Premier League games. Club chiefs are yet to discuss the possibility of sacking Potter, but they are said to be considering a squad clear-out.

CBS suggests that Potter has been informally assured by the club's board that he will be backed to make changes during the transfer window. The former Brighton and Hove Albion manager has called for unity during Chelsea's worst run in 12 years, stating, "It's important to stick together and try to get through this tough period."

"I feel for the supporters," he continued in a post match conference with the media.

The future of players like Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, and Kai Havertz could come under scrutiny, while the club is reportedly prepared to spend big to sign Joao Felix permanently.
