Paul Merson; Graham Potter will be sacked if Chelsea lose to Tottenham this Saturday

Paul Merson; Graham Potter will be sacked if Chelsea lose to Tottenham this Saturday.

This is just his own opinion as Potter’s sack could come sooner than we all expect after the emergency meeting this evening which has already started.

As we wait for the result of the meeting, Here is what Paul Merson said;

‘He [Potter] has just been beaten at home by bottom of the league and he’s still there so maybe they will stick by him.

‘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. People think Potter isn’t the right man for the job, but I think he is. For me, I think give him time.’

Merson believes the players must take a fair shame of the blame, with the Arsenal legend confused as to why some of them were signed in the first place, adding: ‘I like him as a manager but I look at the quality of the players and I question it.

‘They brought Mykhailo Mudryk for £88m and, bar a cameo of 20 minutes, he’s shown nothing. I mean nothing. You wouldn’t expect to need time to settle in at that price.

‘The forward-thinking players are no better than the ones they’ve already got so what’s the point? You can’t tell me that Noni Madueke is a better player than Raheem Sterling or Christian Pulisic. He’s not.

‘Why are you buying a load of players that aren’t better than what you’ve got? None of them improve the team bar Enzo Fernandez and the centre-half [Benoit Badiashile].

‘I’m not sure these are his [Potter’s] 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.’
