Chelsea have sacked Graham Potter as their manager.
The Premier League side confirmed this in a statement on Sunday.
Potter was appointed by Blues co-owner in September to replace Thomas Tuchel.
However, he has been dismissed with seven months into the five-year contract he signed.
Potter won only seven of his 22 Premier League games in charge.
His exit follows Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa, a result which left the Blues 11th in the Premier League table, now 12 points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.
