Chelsea travelled to Craven Cottage hoping to get back on track given their disastrous run so far this season. The Blues have been anything but fantastic this campaign, and already the manager Graham Potter is seeing his dream appointment turning into a nightmare.
Sunday’s FA Cup heavy defeat to City summed up all that has gone wrong for Chelsea this term; a team depleted by injuries, uncertain in its structure, unable to get the ball up the pitch into dangerous areas and toothless in the final third.
As gathered from BBC Sport, Fulham fans aren’t making life any easy for the former Brighton manager and were heard chanting at the Englishman “You’re getting sacked in the morning”, shortly after the home side took the lead through Willian in the 25th minute.
Graham Potter knows he must win at Craven Cottage in order to ease the pressure on his shoulders. His team started the game 10th place on the Premier league table, but a win against Fulham can lift them into 8th position.
