Gary Lineker also made a similar comment to Carragher over Chelsea’s previous owner. “Chelsea have fired Thomas Tuchel,” Lineker wrote on Twitter. “Didn’t take long for the new owner to follow his predecessor’s policy of getting rid at the first real dip in form.”

Chelsea are expected to approach Brighton to speak with Graham Potter later on Wednesday according to Sky Sports, and will also be in discussions with former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane to replace Tuchel.

Tuchel took on the blame for his side’s dismal Champions League result in Croatia. “We are clearly not there, where we need to be and where we can be,” he told BT Sport. “So it’s on me, it’s on us, we need to find solutions. At the moment, everything is missing, [there is] too much to analyse. I’m a part of it. I am angry at myself, I am angry at our performance. I didn’t see it coming. We need to be much better. We are not finished, we are not happy but I thought we were on a good way. I am surprised by this performance.”
