After Brighton’s humiliation, Graham Potter, the head coach of Chelsea, has warned the club’s fans that before they can contend for the Premier League title, they must go through “ process of pain.”

The coach made these remarks after Chelsea’s humbling 4-1 defeat at Brighton on Saturday afternoon.

On Potter’s return to the club, the club was appalling as they let three goals in the first half, and he received jeers from Brighton supporters the entire time.

It was Chelsea’s first loss under Potter following nine-game winning streak at Bridge, but it brought up significant concerns about the method and personnel decisions of the head coach.

But, Potter has hit back at his critics and said that the defeat will only make his team better, saying: ‘It’s case of analysing the game, being calm, being fair.

‘It’s not about the players necessarily. It’s about all of us, it’s collective, including myself. How we can do better.

I am responsible as much as the players. Sometimes you get things wrong tactically. It would be easy for me to blame the players after game but it isn’t as straightforward as that.

‘I am to say that because ultimately if you want to be role model for people trying their best and trying to improve you need to be that way yourself. I have to do better, we have to do better. We will. People want simple answer and I get that. But it’s quite complex. There are lots of things involved and I have to start with myself and think about how can I do better?’

Chelsea have tough last few games before the World Cup break with games against Arsenal, Manchester City and Newcastle.

He added: ‘We got off to really bad start [against Brighton]. But you have to have that sometimes if you want to make progress. If you think that the line is going to go straight up, it’s impossible.

‘That team you saw out there for Brighton wasn’t the team that was there three years ago. There is process of pain that you have to go through and you have to keep trying to improve.

‘Unless there is another way. Whenever you are trying to learn or master something, get better, you need to sometimes have step back, have bad spell or suffer to grow and get better.’
