It has been a rough start for his successor, Graham Potter, with Chelsea 10th in the Premier League, out of the Carabao Cup and out of the FA Cup by the second week of January.
Sunday’s 4-0 loss to Manchester City, who beat them in the league days prior, saw Disgruntled Chelsea supporters chant for Tuchel and previous owner Roman Abramovich.
A section of the 8,000 away fans at the Etihad Stadium turned on the ownership and Potter as the Blues slumped to a fifth defeat in seven matches.
The travelling fans could be heard chanting ‘We’ve got super Tommy Tuchel’ from the stands in Manchester.
Former owner Abramovich’s name was also sung loudly in the away end as their performance was labelled ‘pathetic’.

Jordan has backed Boehly to make the right call in giving Potter time but the former Brighton boss himself conceded that the club are ‘suffering’ in this moment due to the winless run.
‘The results in a small space of time are not positive. You can make excuses, look for reasons, or you can say it isn’t good enough,’ Potter said on Sunday.
‘Clearly we are suffering and it’s not nice at all. You can understand the fans’ frustration and we respect that. There are always other opinions and criticism because results haven’t been positive.
‘We need to stay together, support each other and I’m sure we’ll get the support of the supporters when they see good results.’
Both Boehly and Potter will hope Joao Felix, who is heading in on loan after Chelsea verbally agreed a £9m deal with Atletico Madrid, can help transform this second half of the season.
