Graham Potter has been warned that his time at Chelsea could soon come to an end.

Chelsea boss Graham Potter could be sacked if he doesn’t get results in his next three games, reckons Jamie O’Hara. The Blues have won just one of their last 10 matches in all competitions ahead of Sunday’s trip to Tottenham.

Potter is under great pressure for his position at Stamford Bridge. After the short trip to London to play against Spurs, Chelsea will host Leeds next Saturday, before the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Borussia Dortmund.

Former Tottenham midfielder O’Hara believes the March 7 match against Dortmund could be Potter’s last game in charge. Chelsea are 1-0 down in the first leg and O’Hara disagrees with claims that owner Todd Boehly should stay with Potter even if results do not improve.

He said on talkSPORT: “Graham Potter’s next three games. He’s got Tottenham tomorrow, which is huge, then he’s got Leeds and then Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

“If he doesn’t get three big results, I think he could go. Chelsea fans don’t agree with me, Jason Cundy keeps saying ‘no, no, it wouldn’t make sense to sack him’. I’m telling you, he misses the next three games , he’s gone.”

Boehly supported Potter in the January transfer window, taking his market spend to over £600m. Despite the run of poor results, Potter continues to receive support from the Chelsea hierarchy.

But former Aston Villa captain Gabriel Agbonlahor says there must come a point when Potter can’t get anything more out of the players. He believes a managerial change at the end of the season would be beneficial for a new campaign.

Working alongside O’Hara, Agbonlahor said, “You say there’s no point in firing you, but if I’m the owner and I’ve invested so much money I want success right away. You can lose the odd game and win one and lose one and win one.

“But I would be thinking of looking for another manager, giving him 10 games until the end of the season, getting him used to these players, choosing which ones he wants, hopefully the ones that were bought recently!

“But the ones he doesn’t want, he can say ‘okay, at the start of next season this is my team, I’ve played 10 games with them, I know what I want’. It’s no use just keeping Potter if he’s not listening these players because the season is over.”
