Chelsea Win Over AC Milan Provides Relief for Graham Potter

Chelsea Win Over AC Milan Provides Relief for Graham Potter

Everybody at Stamford Bridge can take a breath. The Graham Potter era is properly underway and Chelsea’s 2022-23 Champions League campaign has finally got started. An emphatic 3–0 victory over AC Milan was important in lifting Chelsea to second in the group, but perhaps also in helping to dispel some of the doubts lurking in certain quarters about Potter’s credibility—although whether a win over an AC Milan side playing as badly as this means much is another issue.

There was real pressure on Chelsea at kickoff, heightened by RB Salzburg’s 1–0 win over Dinamo Zagreb earlier in the evening. The defeat in Croatia the day before Thomas Tuchel’s dismissal and then a draw at home to Salzburg in Potter’s first game in charge meant Chelsea really had to get a minimum of four points from its double-header with Milan or face risking a three-point gap to second in the group with two games remaining. The harder part of that job is done, although Milan will surely not be this insipid at San Siro next week.
