Chelsea boss Graham Potter has turned his attention to his sides next game after Aston Villa’s stunning victory at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues were comprehensively beaten 2-0 by Aston Villa, who leapfrogged them and Fulham in the league table to move up to 9th place.
Goals either side of the break from Ollie Watkins and John McGinn left Chelsea in the bottom half of the table and seemingly all but out of the race for Champions League qualification next season.
Following the defeat, Potter’s future in west London hangs in the balance, with pressure building from fans towards the Englishman.
Speaking to the press, Potter urged his side to right the wrongs of the loss by following it up with a win in their next game.
“We have a fantastic game on Tuesday (against Liverpool) to put things right,” the head coach said.

Potter also praised his side’s commitment in the game and took responsibility for the loss.
“What I’ll say is the boys gave everything in the game. They absolutely did. They tried. Ultimately, you need to defend better than we did. I’m responsible for that.”
Potter has struggled since joining the Blues from Brighton in September, and this month appears to be one which could define his career in west London.
And should Potter want to remain as the man to build for the future in the eyes of the Chelsea hierarchy, he will need to show signs of progression in this quite frankly, make or break month for him.
