Graham Potter insists there is a ‘long way to go’ this season when discussing Chelsea’s hopes of a top four finish.
Chelsea are fifth in the Premier League after a mixed start to the new campaign, with the west Londoners having sacked Thomas Tuchel and named Potter as his replacement.
The former Brighton boss is unbeaten in three games since taking the reins and Chelsea produced their most impressive performance of the season so far to beat AC Milan 3-0 in the Champions League in midweek.
Potter was asked on his season’s ambitions and the prospect of securing a top four finish, but insisted his focus is only on the next game as Chelsea host Wolves this weekend.
“I think we’ve made a little bit of progress from the first day to now, as you’d expect. There is a long way to go,” he told his pre-match press conference.
”We have to focus on the next match. We’ve got this incredible amount of games so rather than think too much about what’s going to happen at the end of the season, just focus on the next game.”
Wolves arrive at Stamford Bridge without a manager, having sacked Bruno Lage following a poor start to the season. James Collins and Steve Davis, coaches of their Under-21 and Under-18 squads respectively, will take charge of the side this weekend and Potter admits he is unsure how the change will impact the visitors.
“It’s one of those things, I have no idea. My focus is on us. They have a lot of talented players and you can’t control the opposition’s situation.
”They have been in games they have narrowly lost and we are expecting a tough game. Historically it’s a challenge playing Wolves.”
