Chelsea 1-1 Salzburg: Graham Potter’s first game


Share Post:

Graham Potter’s first game in charge of Chelsea was a tight one, as Raheem Sterling scored the team’s first goal against RB Salzburg, but the Blues were held to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

The result does little to alleviate the strain on Chelsea’s Champions League Group E campaign, where they currently sit last out of four teams with a severely diminished prospect of advancing to the competition’s knockout phases.

Potter, the new manager, admitted after the game that he was “frustrated” by the result; he was proud of his team’s effort, but he knows that winning is expected at Chelsea.

After a poor 1-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb in the European Cup opener last week, Chelsea fired head coach Thomas Tuchel for not sharing the club’s long-term strategy with the new ownership.
