Chelsea manager Graham Potter is expected to avoid sacking this season after a crucial meeting with co-owner Behdad Eghbali, according to report.
Potter took over after Thomas Tuchel was fired in September.
The former Brighton manager got off to a flying start, going nine games unbeaten in the Premier League and the Champions League.
However, Chelsea’s form dipped near the end of October, with the Blues being hammered 4-1 by Brighton before falling 1-0 to Arsenal.
Potter’s men were then eliminated from the Carabao Cup after losing 2-0 to Manchester City and 1-0 to Newcastle United.
The poor run put pressure on Potter, as the Blues dropped to eighth place in the table before the World Cup. As Chelsea take on Bournemouth on Tuesday as the Premier League resumes.

Under former owner Roman Abramovich, the club had a reputation for being ruthless with managers, but with Todd Boehly’s takeover in the summer, the club is looking to change its approach and wants to give Potter time to settle in.
Potter traveled to California during the World Cup to meet Eghbali and was assured that his long-term future is secure.
