And Potter is coming under increasing pressure after just two wins in his last 15 league matches.

The former Brighton boss was booed by those in attendance for last weekend’s defeat to Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

Any jeers today from the travelling supporters were drowned out by Spurs’ celebrations.

So fans found another way to make their anger known after the final whistle.

Within minutes of the result, a petition on Change.org went live demanding Potter’s Chelsea exit.

It quickly racked up thousands of signatures, boasting over 4,000 after just 40 minutes.

And it hit a whopping 8,000 signatures over an hour later, with many fans agreeing with the petition’s description.

It read: “Todd Boehly, Behdad Eghbali, and shareholders, this petition is directed at you to please sack Graham Potter.


“As of this Petition he has 2 wins in 15 games, and has left the fans exhausted and devastated, despite spending hundreds of millions.

“We have immense quality in the squad, however there is one area we can change, which is the coach.

“For the future of Chelsea Football Club, please sack Graham Potter.”

Fans also added their voice, with one saying: “He’s the worst coach I’ve seen.”

Another declared: “Lack of effort and passion from him and the team, need to inject some energy.”

One noted: “Graham Potter is not good enough for Chelsea.”

Another added: “He is not the man for the job and is leading Chelsea astray.”

It remains to be seen if Boehly and Eghbali heed fans’ pleas, having given Potter their backing earlier in the week.

But the manager himself knows results must improve quickly if he is to turn around the negative atmosphere.

Potter said post-match: “I know the responsibility. (The results) are not good enough for this club.

“I’m not happy with them. I take full responsibility for those results.

“If results aren’t good enough, which they aren’t at the moment, you can’t rely on support forever.

“My job is to keep going, to try and change the moment. The players are hurting. It’s a tough moment for us.”
