Graham Potter has been sacked by Chelsea after six disastrous months at Stamford Bridge.

The 47-year-old was taken from Brighton last September as Thomas Tuchelreplacement of, with Chelsea’s new owners keen to build for the long term and move away from the previous regime’s controversial hiring and firing policies.

However, the results of Potter faith tested put in him by co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali, ultimately meeting the same fate as many of his predecessors with a brief stint with The Blues.

But how did Potter fare statistically during his turbulent period as leader of the club?

Let’s break down the numbers of his Chelsea record.

What is Graham Potter’s record at Chelsea?

Only 12 of those games ended in a win, in addition to eight draws and 11 losses.

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

Before Chelsea won three games ahead of the March international break, Chelsea had won just one game in their 11 appearances in 2023 – a one-nil victory over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.

Potter could only muster 1.27 points per game in the Premier League – the joint lowest of all managers in charge of Chelsea for at least 20 Premier League games, alongside Glen Hoddle.

Chelsea found the back of the net just 33 times in all competitions during his tenure with just under 1.1 goals per game, while 31 goals were scored at the back.

The difficulty the team had in scoring goals is underlined by the fact that, since Potter’s first Premier League game in charge, no other team has performed as poorly as Chelsea with a difference of -7.4 (21 goals against 28.4xG).

Of their 33 goals, 13 came in Potter’s first six games in charge, also producing five wins.

Chelsea were knocked out in the third round of the Carabao Cup and FA Cup by Manchester City, although the former left-back did send the West Londoners to the Premier League Quarterfinals Champions League with victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Round of 16.

Potter leaves the club in 11th place in the Premier League, 12 points off the top four, with a victorious Champions League campaign that is sure to be their only chance to compete at the top of European football again next season.
