Graham Potter decisions particularly were dissatisfying after his team allowed a late goal in the 2-2 draw vs Everton.
Chelsea Online News:
Chelsea may be relieved that Graham Potter is no longer under pressure, but a decision must be made over Mason Mount’s future as rumours about the attacking midfielder’s desire to leave Stamford Bridge linger.
Potter watched his team give up late to lose two points in a 2-2 draw against Everton, so he won’t be feeling much better about the blow of Mount’s likely exit.
It was clear from his expression. Potter was aware that his team had missed a golden opportunity to cut the distance on the top four, but the 47-year-old may have thought that this one was his fault.
Before Mateo Kovacic and Wesley Fofana were replaced, his team was in command. The late-arriving Simms, 22, provided Everton with their due rewards for going for the kill when they smelled blood.
Potter has been criticised for making too many changes to his team, and in this particular game, all five substitutions may not have been required because his players did not appear particularly exhausted. When the ball went in the net, his depressed posture said it all, and now he must inspire his team to recover after the international break.
