Pundit issues 'shock' Graham Potter verdict as Chelsea 'falling apart'

Chelsea are “falling apart” in the Premier League ahead of a crucial game against league leaders Arsenal.

That is according to Spurs expert John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

Chelsea lost 4-1 to Brighton in their last Premier League game (29 October) as a calamitous defensive performance saw Graham Potter’s side concede three goals in the first half.

Potter faced abusive chants from the Brighton fans on his first trip back to the club he left in September.

Wenham couldn’t believe what he saw from the Blues.

“People texted me saying how excited they were about Chelsea’s demise at Brighton while we were 2-0 down to Bournemouth,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“Obviously once our game turned around I could watch their highlights and really enjoy myself. Actually, Brighton absolutely battered them.

“There were clearances off the line in the first few minutes. It was Chalobah at the back with Thiago Silva so where has the tin man Koulibaly gone?

“It seems like apart from that game against us he has done absolutely nothing for them. It seems like things are falling apart. It must have been bad for Potter, that game.

“He got some abuse from the fans so that must have been a shock for him. This game against Arsenal is huge for them.

“Usually I would support anything against Arsenal but there is a strange world where maybe a draw wouldn’t be too bad, just to see Chelsea cut adrift from a Tottenham point of view.”

Chelsea host Arsenal on Sunday (6 November).

Potter’s side go into the game on the back of a Champions League win against Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday (2 November).
