Chelsea has fired manager Graham Potter with the club languishing in the middle of the Premier League standings despite spending around $630 million on players in the last two transfer windows.

The team announced Potter's departure on Sunday, a day after a 2-0 loss to Aston Villa that left Chelsea in 11th place.

"Graham has agreed to collaborate with the club to facilitate a smooth transition," Chelsea said.

Potter was hired in September to replace Thomas Tuchel.
