Despite Chelsea’s below-par performances, the club’s board are understood to be standing behind Potter and believe he is the right man to improve the situation.
Chelsea supporters have already sang Tuchel’s name during games this season, with a section of fans believing that the decision to sack the German in September was the wrong move.
However, the Evening Standard reports that the idea of Tuchel returning to Chelsea is ‘impossible’ as the club’s hierarchy ‘grew frustrated’ with how the German worked.

The report also claims that Paris Saint-Germain are considering the idea of re-appointing Tuchel to replace Christophe Galtier.
PSG sacked Tuchel just over two years ago but the French club are now said to be willing to admit that they made a mistake.
Tuchel, who is currently out of work after he was dismissed by Chelsea earlier this season, would need assurances before agreeing to return to PSG.
Towards the end of his stint at PSG, Tuchel had fallen out with sporting director Leonardo but he was replaced by Luis Campos last year.
PSG are currently five points clear at the top of Ligue 1 but elimination in the Coupe de France and a defeat in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against Bayern Munich last week has piled the pressure on Galtier.
