Graham Potter praises his team for having a ‘positive day’ at Anfield

Mykhailo Mudryk made his debut for the Blues in their goalless draw against Liverpool.

Graham Potter is content after walking away with a point after a goalless draw at Anfield, which he described as a “positive day”.

The two sides are now once again at level points with Chelsea sitting in the tenth position, having won only two of their last 10 games (D2L6). Potter’s side was dominant for the majority of the game and even scored a goal but Havertz’s strike was ruled out as an offside goal.

"I thought the performance was good,"

Potter told BT Sport after the draw. 

"I was happy with the team, the energy, what we tried to do. At Anfield, it is always tough. It's a clean sheet and a point [and] we move forward.

"First half, we were decent, unlucky not to get the goal. It is what it is. They started the second half well, and we adjusted a couple of things and gained control, had a couple of chances. Overall, a positive day, apart from the fact we wanted three points."

The former Brighton boss was asked about their new signing

Mykhailo Mudryk

, who showed flashes of brilliance in the second half when he came on.

"He's not played since November. He hasn't had any game time. It would've been a risk. He'll get better the more he is with us,"

Potter said.

Potter went on to talk about their January signings, saying:

"They're top players. Sometimes people think us coaches turn top players into top players. But Mudryk, Joao, they understand the game. It's just fine-turning it a bit."

Chelsea star

Mason Mount

, who has been linked with a summer move to Liverpool, gave his verdict on the game as he said:

"You know this is going to be a tough place to come. Overall, we controlled a lot of it. We could have taken our chances.

"It has been tough lately, we want to win games. I feel like it is getting better and we worked hard today.

"We'll definitely take this today. The final passes weren't there – if it was maybe we would have scored a few in the first half, but as I said, this is a tough place to come.

"They press you and force mistakes, like [they did in] the second half, and I think we came through that."
