Chelsea boss Graham Potter has opened up on his future after yet another loss as head coach at Stamford Bridge.

The head coach saw his side outplayed at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before Oliver Skipp and Harry Kane’s goals saw Chelsea lose yet again.

There was controversy during the clash, with Hakim Ziyech handed a red card at the end of the first half.

Ziyech shoved Emerson Royal in the face, with tempers boiling over in the London derby.

The winger was sent off initially by Stuart Atwell before VAR overruled the decision and Chelsea went in level.

Defeat in London sees Potter’s poor record at Stamford Bridge continue as the Blues have now won just once in 15 games.

Pressure is mounting on the head coach, with it previously reported that they remained confident in Potter to turn things around.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Potter revealed that he cannot rely in blind trust by the Chelsea owners.

“Of course. It’s the same in any job anywhere,” he said when asked about the pressure.

“If results aren’t good enough, which they aren’t, you can’t rely on support forever. My job is to keep going.”

It remains to be seen as to whether the Blues will act before they face Leeds United next weekend in the Premier League.

Boehly was in attendance at Tottenham and looked a frustrated figure in the stands as his Chelsea team fell to another defeat under Potter’s stewardship.
