“#PotterOut” is already trending on social media after Graham Potter’s first game in charge of Chelsea ended in a bitterly disappointing 1-1 draw against RB Salzburg.
After the Blues’ 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in their Champions League debut last week, Thomas Tuchel was fired.
Raheem Sterling’s goal in the 48th minute gave the home team the lead after a scoreless first half.
With only 15 minutes remaining, the visitors tied the score thanks to an equalizer from Salzburg’s star Noah Okafor.
Potter substituted players like Conor Gallagher, Hakim Ziyech, and Christian Pulisic in the closing minutes to try and score the winning goal, but they were unable to get past Salzburg’s tenacious defense.
After earning just one point out of a possible six, Chelsea now finds themselves at the bottom of Group E as a result of the draw.
Following the game, Twitter users began using the hashtag #PotterOut to vent their annoyance.
We’re disappointed with the outcome, he remarked. Although their goal made some excellent stops, we scored a terrific goal but fell behind a bit in the second half.
“It is what it is, and we must pick ourselves up. We shall improve. Personality and application were good.
When you give up a goal, it always irritates me. Overall, the defense played fairly well; we just need to work on the tiny nuances.
