HLV Graham Potter becomes the first coach in Chelsea’s history to suffer a defeat at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after the loss against Tottenham.
Traveling to Tottenham’s stadium with only two victories in their last 14 games, Chelsea was predicted to face many difficulties against their city rival.
As predicted, Chelsea’s performance against Tottenham only ended in disappointment. Throughout the majority of the game, Chelsea had more ball possession and created more chances than Tottenham, but their attack could not convert those opportunities. Tottenham only needed two chances to score goals against Kepa, Chelsea’s goalkeeper. Chelsea suffered two goals and could not recover against Tottenham’s tight defense.
This defeat continued Chelsea’s crisis, and they remain in the 10th position in the standings. Additionally, this result marked a new sad milestone in the career of HLV Graham Potter.
Specifically, this was the first time Chelsea suffered a defeat at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Since March 25, 2019 (the date Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was inaugurated), Chelsea had played three games at this stadium and won all of them with a total score of 6-0. However, today, Chelsea lost 0-2, and the man who achieved this was HLV Graham Potter.
This defeat deepened Chelsea’s crisis, and with more than 600 million euros spent by owner Todd Boehly in the summer and winter transfer windows, this achievement is unacceptable. Moreover, Graham Potter’s future is alarming, with rumors of his dismissal appearing frequently in the news.
As for Tottenham, the three points against Chelsea helped Antonio Conte’s team solidify their position in the top 4, being 4 points ahead of Newcastle but having played two more games.
