Graham Potter claims that the recent success of


is a reflection of their progress as the come out on top, winning 3-1 win against Leicester City. The Blues had previously won only two out of twelve matches before defeating Leeds United the previous Saturday.

After defeating Leeds United last Saturday, Chelsea continued their winning streak with a 2-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund that led them to the Champions League quarter-finals. The week was rounded off with a strong performance at the King Power Stadium.

Chelsea's new signings Enzo Fernandez and Mykhailo Mudryk impressed in the team's 3-1 win over Leicester City, with Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz, and Mateo Kovacic scoring the goals. Despite their recent form, Chelsea are still 11 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham and will need to fight to secure a spot in European competitions next season.

Potter told Sky Sports:

"It's been a really positive week for us, three wins against Leeds, Dortmund and today says a lot about the development of the team. It's a hard fought game, as they always are, but in the end I thought we deserved to win.

"Three wins in the week at this level is very pleasing. Now we have to follow that up with a win next weekend and then into the international break. We will try to get three points against Everton."

Both Ben Chilwell and Wesley Fofana, who previously played for Leicester, recieved a cold reception from


fans but Potter was delighted with their response.

"Ben answered it in the perfect way, it was one of those games where the home crowd made it difficult but they handled it well,"

he added. 

"It wasn't a straightforward game, Leicester had chances and we had to suffer but that will get better as we keep going.

"Our defensive record has been good in terms of goals conceded in the Premier League and the mentality is strong in the team. They give everything, they want to keep the ball out of the net and we have players on the other side who want to put the ball in the back of the net."
