Chelsea manager Graham Potter has revealed that he understands the frustration among Chelsea fans due to the team’s poor run of form this year.

Graham Potter is under intense pressure to turn the results around at Stamford Bridge after spending over 600 million pounds in the January transfer window to bring eight players into the team.

Despite the financial investments, the Blues have just two wins in their last 14 games in all competitions. Their poor run of form continued at the weekend as they followed up a 1-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last week with another 1-0 loss to Southampton at Stamford Bridge and Saturday.

A first-half free kick from James Ward-Prowse secured the win for bottom-placed Southampton, and Potter believes Chelsea may need an element of luck to stop the rot and assured fans that the team will scale through the tough period.

“Sometimes you go through moments in a season when you think everything is against you. You need that little bit of luck – something to go in. If you don’t score, then it makes life very difficult for you. You know the results aren’t what we want. Absolutely. You can completely understand the supporters’ frustration. We all feel it the same. Our job is to keep working, keep trying to improve the team, and keep going through what is a difficult period for us all.” Potter said.

Chelsea has not won since their 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace in January and are currently in tenth position with 31 points. Their next set of games includes a London derby with Tottenham Hotspur and another Premier League tie against Leeds United before welcoming German giants Borussia Dortmund to Stamford Bridge for the second leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 clash.

They are already four points behind Brentford in ninth and 11 points behind the top 4 places, making the possibility of playing in Europe next season hang by the threads.
