Chelsea are now 11th with 38 points, while Aston Villa are ninth with 41 points.
What the fans are saying
Fans have called for coach Graham Potter’s head after the Blues’ latest embarrassment.
@DanielRegha: “Chelsea lost 2-0 to Aston Villa under Potter‘s leadership, while Bayern Munich outplayed Dortmund 4-2 thanks to Tuchel’s coaching skills; Hope Boehly is still happy with his decision. Chelsea had one of the best coaches in the game but Boehly thought he knew better. What a loss.”

@AlexGoldberg_: “This should be the last day Graham Potter should be employed by Chelsea Football Club. Let’s cut the cord before things somehow get even worse. Which is hard to fathom but clearly possible.”
@CfcSheikh: “Sacking Thomas Tuchel for Graham Potter is the worst decision in footballing history. Todd Boehly will pay for his sins.”
@Cfc_Janty: “Lampard got us top 4 with a transfer ban. Potter has us in 11th after we’ve spent millions. Not even close to being the same.”
@siphillipsport: “Can no longer defend this form. It’s time, Graham Potter must go. The task is too big for him. My patience is out. No more excuses.”
@Potentsports”April fools but we’re the only joke. I would say thanks for the memories but there is none. Not totally your fault Potter the board made a diabolical decision. I do not want you in charge for the upcoming season. Get in a top coach for this top team now! #Potterout”
@CfCmod_: “Boehly is 100% an opp if he isn’t ringing Potter’s phone at full time telling him there’s police to escort him out the club.”
@EmenaIo: “Well done @todd_boehly, what a superb decision from you to sack Thomas Tuchel and hire Graham Potter. Hope you’re enjoying what you’re seeing.”
