Potter ‘not getting carried away’ despite strong start at Chelsea

Graham Potter insists he is ‘not getting carried away’ despite a strong start to his tenure at Chelsea.

Chelsea are unbeaten in four games since Potter’s appointment as head coach and a run of three consecutive wins has increased confidence at Stamford Bridge.


The west Londoners were impressive in comfortable victories over AC Milan and Wolves last week, though Potter insists he is not getting carried away despite the upturn in performances.

Chelsea renew rivalries with AC Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday evening and ahead of the clash, Potter insisted it is important to focus on the process of improvement.

“As I used to say at Brighton, wins are the best way to convince people that your ideas can work, but it is only a short time,” he told his pre-match press conference.

“So I’m not getting carried away. Wins help, but it’s about getting to know the players and the process. But we all know – and you guys will remind me – that we need to win as well. So it was a good week, but it was only a week.”

Chelsea produced an impressive performance to beat the Italian champions 3-0 last week, but Potter is expecting ‘a completely different game’ as the Blues take on Milan at the San Siro.

“It is an incredible place here, and it will be a completely different game. AC Milan will try to use the home advantage as we did last week. It is two good teams, two evenly-matched teams. So it will be a fantastic game, and I’m looking forward to it.”
