Potter knows of work to be done at Chelsea but acknowledges progress
Chelsea have won three of their last four games, and Graham Potter thinks they are making improvements
Graham Potter believes Chelsea have made progress under his leadership, but admits there is still work to be done for the Blues to regain their top form. In September, the former Brighton and Hove Albion manager replaced Thomas Tuchel as the Stamford Bridge bench under new owner Todd Boehly.
However, Potter has been under pressure due to a poor post-World Cup run of form before a run of three victories and advancement to the Champions League quarterfinals eased the situation.
Despite the Toffees stoppingChelsea
from making it four straight wins in Saturday's 2-2 stalemate with Everton, Potter believes his side is improving under his leadership.
"It's been an intense few weeks,"
he told the club's website.
"We have had a couple of decent weeks. Clearly, we wanted to get the fourth win and go into this break with a victory.
"We have to keep thinking about how we can move forward, and what we have to do better. [The] stability, togetherness [and] spirit in the group has been a real positive over these tough months.
"Before the World Cup, the intensity of the games and the injuries we were picking up was crazy. The transfer window added noise we've got a young group that are falling together well. There's lots still to do."
For the first time since August, Potter was allowed to select influential World Cup winner N'Golo Kante for the match against Everton.
He is optimistic that by giving the Frenchman some game time, he can ease the Frenchman's return since many of the club's big-name players are away on international duty.
"N'Golo is due to carry on training this week, and potentially [have] a game to get some minutes,"
"That's the plan there. The game will probably be internal. We need to control that as much as we can. But that will be good."
