Chelsea fans chant Tuchel's name

A section of Chelsea fans, who turned up to cheer their club on at the away stadium, chose to express their disappointment with the team's performance by singing Tuchel's name.

“We've got Super Tommy Tuchel," the supporters could be heard chanting.

Tuchel spent 18 months at the helm of affairs at Stamford Bridge before he was shown the door back in September 2022.

The German's sacking came just days after the Blues had suffered a shock defeat in their Champions League opener against Dinamo Zagreb.

The tactician was eventually replaced by Potter, who is now already under increasing pressure from fans.

Meanwhile, the Englishman will be hoping to get Chelsea's campaign back on track when they take on Fulham in the Premier League on Thursday, January 12.

Potter sends fans defiant message

At the same time, Sports Brief reported that Chelsea boss Potter sent a defiant message to Blues fans who want him sacked.

He has been at the helm of affairs at Stamford Bridge since September 2022, succeeding Tuchel after the German was fired.

However, the former Brighton manager has endured a tumultuous start to life with the west Londoners, with the side currently placed 10th in the Premier League.
