While they remain committed to Potter, Chelsea are aware that no top managers would be willing to step in and replace him at this point of the season.

The club also recognise that hiring a top managerial target will be incredibly difficult with Champions League qualification looking increasingly unlikely this season.

The London club currently sit 10th in the Premier League, 14 points off fourth-placed Tottenham.

Potter replaced Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge in September and went on a run of nine games unbeaten to start his reign.

However, a 4-1 loss to Potter’s former club Brighton followed in October, and Chelsea have struggled for form ever since with just three wins since that loss on the south coast.

Prior to his appointment at Chelsea, Potter spent three seasons at Brighton, helping the Seagulls establish themselves in the Premier League.

Potter took charge of 134 Brighton games and departed the club last year with arate of 1.28 points per game.

His first 26 games at Chelsea have resulted in nine wins, seven draws and 10 losses, giving him a win percentage of 34.6 and 1.31 points per match.
