The Blues welcome Everton to Stamford Bridge this weekend and the former Brighton boss has been addressing fans at a club event.

Gareth Southgate has named his England squad for the upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers against Ukraine and Italy but their is still one more round of Premier League fixtures before the first international break of 2023.

While rivals Manchester United and Arsenal have been in UEFA Europa League action, Chelsea boss Graham Potter has been addressing supporters of the Blues at a special club event. The former Brighton & Hove Albion boss had an impassioned message for the fans in attendance which is now doing the rounds on social media. Be aware, the clip contains some strong language from the Blues’ boss.

When asked by the evening’s host for a message to the fans and an exciting end to the season to look forward to, Potter said: “Firstly, thank you, because they’ve been incredibly fair with us. They’ve stuck with the team and the support we’ve had has been amazing. We’ll need them on Saturday, we’ll try and beat Everton, then we’ll take the draw, and then we’ll try and win the f*****g Champions League.”

The message was met with approval from the gathered crowd as well as a few light hearted chuckles, perhaps due to the club’s poor form this season. Chelsea currently sit 10th in the Premier League table and are 11 points behind London rivals Tottenham Hotspur who occupy fourth spot - the position the Blue would have to make it to in order to reach UEFA’s elite competition next season.

It’s a big ask and many pundits have written off their chances but it’s not impossible. As Potter says, they start this weekend by trying to beat Everton and then taking it from there.
