has been after six disastrous months in the Stamford Bridge hot seat.

The 47 year-old was last September as ’s replacement, with keen to build long-term and move away from the previous regime’s controversial hire and fire policy.

However, Potter’s results put in him by co-owners and Behdad Eghbali, and in the end he suffered the same fate as many of his predecessors with a short stay at The Blues.

But how did Potter fare statistically across his turbulent spell in charge of the club?

Let’s crunch the numbers from his Chelsea record.

What is Graham Potter’s record at Chelsea?

Potter took charge of 31 games in total at Chelsea across all competitions.

Just 12 of those matches ended in victory, alongside eight draws and 11 defeats.

This gives Potter a win rate of just 39%, the lowest of any permanent manager at the club this century.

Before winning three games on the bounce ahead of March’s international break, Chelsea had only won one game across their 11 fixtures in 2023 – a one nil victory over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.

Potter could only muster 1.27 points per game in the – the joint-lowest of any manager to take charge of Chelsea for at least 20 Premier League matches, alongside Glen Hoddle.

Chelsea only found the back of the net 33 times in all competitions across his tenure at just under 1.1 goals per game, whilst 31 goals were shipped at the back.

The difficulty the team had in scoring goals is highlighted by the fact that, since Potter’s first Premier League game in charge, no other team underperformed their expected goals (xG) tally as much as Chelsea with a differential of -7.4 (21 goals from 28.4 xG).

Of their 33 goals, 13 arrived in Potter’s first six matches in charge, which also yielded five victories.

Chelsea were knocked out in the third rounds of the Carabao Cup and FA Cup at the hands of Manchester City, although the former left back did guide the west Londoners into the with victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Round of 16.

Potter leaves the club in 11th place in the Premier League table, 12 points off the top four, with a victorious Champions League campaign surely their only chance of competing at the top table of European football once again next season.
