Graham Potter retains support from Chelsea board despite Sunday’s 4-0 FA Cup loss to Manchester City.
The former Brighton boss has been under pressure after a run of six defeats in nine games in all competitions, with Chelsea exiting both domestic cups and slipping to 10th place in the Premier League.
Fans chanted the name of former boss Thomas Tuchel, who was sacked in September, during Sunday’s game.
But Chelsea sees Potter, who replaced Tuchelas a long-term appointment.
It is believed he can turn around the club’s form, which has not been helped by a long list of injuries.
The club want to take a different approach to that of former owner Roman Abramovich, who is renowned for his high managerial turnover. The Russian’s name was also chanted by Chelsea fans during the loss to Manchester City.
After the game, Potter said: “We have to keep improving and sticking together because we are clearly suffering as a football club.”
Following the takeover of the club by chairman Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital in May, Chelsea spent over £250m on players in the summer before sacking Tuchel; they are now 10 points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.
But having traveled to Manchester City in the first leg of both domestic cup competitions, they now face a series of crucial fixtures over the next five weeks in an attempt to improve their record before facing the Borussia Dortmund in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
They travel to west London rivals Fulham, who are above them in the table, on Thursday before hosting Crystal Palace on Sunday. After facing Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League, they then host Fulham and take on the strugglers West Ham.
The Blues are currently without injured players Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Wesley Fofana, N’Golo Kante, Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic among others.
