CHELSEA will be determined to return to winning ways against local rivals Fulham on Saturday – and without Thomas Tuchel.
The Germany manager was sacked on Wednesday morning after the west London team’s surprise Champions League defeat at Dinamo Zagreb.
And SunSport have exclusively revealed that Brighton boss Graham Potter is in talks with Chelsea to discuss the vacant position.
But for now, Anthony Barry will step in as interim gaffer to steady the ship as he tries to pick up three points against Fulham.
However, the Cottagers are keen to bounce back after losing to Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

Everything you need to know about the Premier League
Manor Solomon and Harry Wilson were the only absentees for Marco Silva in the Tottenham defeat.
But he will be delighted to have given Vinicius a late run on deadline day to glean some Premier League minutes.
Elsewhere, caretaker manager Anthony Barry will be tempted to bring Thiago Silva back into the team after being rested for the Champions League defeat by Dinamo Zagreb.
Edouard Mendy is also likely to reclaim his spot between the sticks and there will be a race against time before Deadline signs Denis Zakaria to get his work permit.
However, N’Golo Kante looks like he will continue to be treated in the hospital room.
- Fulham win 16/5
- Draw 29.10
- Chelsea win 4/5
