Graham PotterGraham Potter signed a five-year contract upon his appointment in September

Graham Potter still has the support of Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly and the club board despite her poor form.

The Blues have won just two of their last 14 games in all competitions and were beaten 1-0 by Premier League contenders Southampton on Saturday.

Potter was appointed in September following Thomas Tuchel’s sacking.

However, Chelsea owners have made it clear that hiring Potter was part of a long-term project.

It thinks the team need an opportunity to gel after a rebuild that saw £583m spent on new players in the last two transfer windows, with eight signings arriving in January alone.

It is also recognized that the unprecedented injury crisis has also contributed to the trying circumstances for Potter.

A head injury sustained by Cesar Azpilicueta in Saturday’s game adds another name to Chelsea’s long list of injuries, including Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Christian Pulisic, Wesley Fofana, Edouard Mendy, Denis Zakaria and Armando Broja.

Potter’s future at Stamford Bridge will not be determined by success in the Champions League this season or the team’s ability to qualify for European football next season.

While it is accepted that Saturday’s result was not good enough – Southampton are bottom of the Premier League – there are encouraging signs at the club.

Potter left Brighton and signed a five-year deal with Chelsea after Tuchel was sacked.

Chelsea have won nine of their 25 games under Potter and sit 10th in the Premier League, 10 points off the Champions League places.

Next, the Blues take on fourth-placed Tottenham (13:30 GMT) on Sunday.
