Man City boss Guardiola: Chelsea must give Potter time

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has urged Chelsea to be patient with manager Graham Potter.

Guardiola was speaking after City knocked out Chelsea from the Carabao Cup this week.

The Blues currently sit seventh in the league, registering just six wins from 13 games played at this stage, leading to some warnings that they could miss out on the top four.

“If Chelsea accept my humble advice, give him time and he will do well,” said the Spaniard.

“They got good results but the way they play, when I saw the game against Brighton that they lost, I saw many things I remember from his period in Brighton. But he needs time, everybody needs time.”
