New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly made the bold move of sacking Tuchel yesterday – a story that came out of nowhere and left much of the footballing world in shock after his tremendous success at Stamford Bridge, and a busy summer transfer window leaving him with a new squad to work with.
However, it now looks like Potter is quickly set to come in as Chelsea’s new manager under the new regime, with Matt Law of the Telegraph confirming this move is now all but done after the Brighton boss reached a verbal agreement with the Blues…

Potter has done impressive work at Brighton and it will be intriguing to see how he gets on at a big club like Chelsea.
