Mikel Arteta fires warning to Graham Potter over Chelsea’s poor run

According to Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, if Graham Potter fails to enhance Chelsea’s performance, his tenure as their manager will not be able to continue for long.

Chelsea’s recent form has been poor, with only one win in their last 11 matches, and they suffered a 2-0 loss to Tottenham on Sunday, marking their third straight defeat.

As a result, Graham Potter is facing significant pressure to turn things around at Stamford Bridge. Reports have emerged this week suggesting that Chelsea’s owners are starting to question their decision to appoint him as the replacement for Thomas Tuchel, who left the club in September.

On the other hand, Arsenal is currently at the top of the Premier League table, leading by two points, and they have the opportunity to extend their lead to five points if they win their upcoming match against Everton on Wednesday evening.

Mikel Arteta faced a challenging period at Arsenal, where he had to endure criticism from fans who were calling for his dismissal, especially after a poor start to the previous season.

However, when asked about how Arsenal’s management responded during this difficult period, and how it compared to Potter’s current situation at Chelsea, Arteta explained that he received a lot of support from the Arsenal hierarchy.

“But at the end you have to win football matches because you know that if the run continues that it is unsustainable.

“I knew I had to win against Norwich and win against Burnley, and then everything helps and the environment starts to get better, everybody is more confident and you can keep going. We depend on results, unfortunately.

“I always just focused on how to turn things around, how to make the team play better, to be more efficient, get players back because we had 11 players out of the squad in that period so we needed players back as quick as possible as well.

“When you have a close relationship with managers which I had in Spain, some in Italy, some here, of course you get in touch, sometimes they give you support like we all do when someone is going through a difficult [period]. Maybe not on the phone, but just at least a nice text of support.”
