Next Chelsea Manager Odds – Graham Potter odds-on to replace sacked Thomas Tuchel
- Chelsea sacked manager Thomas Tuchel on Wednesday
- Tuchel axed after Champions League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb
- Bookies make Brighton boss Graham Potter odds-on favourite for job
Brighton manager Graham Potter is the odds-on favourite to become the next manager of Chelsea.
The Blues sacked Thomas Tuchel on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the disappointing 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League.
That loss came on the back of an underwhelming start to the Premier League season that has seen them lose twice and drop points in three of their first six games.
While Chelsea have faltered, Brighton have made a sensational start to the 2022/23 campaign.
The Seagulls have won four of their first six games, while collecting 13 points from a possible 18, earning plenty of plaudits for manager Potter.
It has seemingly captured the attention of Chelsea, with reports today claiming the Blues have been granted permission to speak with the Brighton boss.
With Potter seemingly at the front of the queue, bookmakers are odds-on that he does not resist the lure of the London club.
bet365 are 4/5 that Potter is confirmed as the next manager of Chelsea, with Coral going slightly shorter at 4/6.
“Graham Potter continues to impress on the south coast and he looks a worthy favourite to replace the departing Thomas Tuchel,” bet365’s Steve Freeth told FreeTips.com.
“Graham Potter has done an excellent job at Brighton over the last few years and our betting suggests he is the frontrunner to land the vacant role at Chelsea,” Coral’s John Hill added.
Former Tottenham and Paris St Germain chief Maurico Pochettino is considered Potter’s biggest rivals by both of those bookies.
Coral is 5/2 that he takes the reins at Stamford Bridge, putting him ahead of 8/1 Zinedine Zidane and 10/1 Brendan Rodgers.
“Pochettino has been out of work since leaving PSG and he is second best in the betting,” Hill continued.
“Multiple Champions League winner Zinedine Zidane is also at the top end of the market.”
