[LIVE NOW] ‘Man Utd vs Real Socied’ Online Live Match
Potter is set to s’ucceed Thomas Tuchel as the new Chelsea boss just a day removed from the German’s sacking.
The English coach’s stock has risen at Brighton & Hove Albion where he has overseen a hugely i’mpressive start to the season.
The Seagulls have ma’naged four wins, one draw and one defeat, including a season-opening 2-1 victory over Manchester United.
They sit in fourth, above both the Blues and the Red Devils, b’ut Potter appears to be on his way to Stamford Bridge.
However, Merson has suggested that Manchester United should have been the ones appointing Gr’aham before they went with Ten Hag this past April.
“I like Potter. I think he is a good manager. Apart from Manchester City, the best team I saw at S’tamford Bridge last season was Brighton. They were unbelievable. Potter makes teams better. He improves players.”
