Chelsea’s tactics are explained by Potter in the face of criticism and a sincere request from Guardiola.
Graham Potter, manager of Chelsea, has addressed the club’s fans and media about the club’s direction and his strategy.
Graham Potter, manager of Chelsea FC, has discussed the team’s future strategy, stating that he wants his squad to maintain a consistent style of play despite his frequent changes to the lineup. There has been considerable disapproval of the new management due to their shaky start to the season.
The Blues are presently in seventh place in the league with a record of 6 wins and 13 losses. This has prompted concerns that they may not make the playoffs. Pep Guardiola, manager of Manchester City, has asked Potter to be allowed time to install a system because of his track record.
Before their EFL Cup match, the Spaniard remarked of Chelsea’s new manager, “If Chelsea take my modest advise, give him time and he will perform well.” “They were successful, but their style of play reminded me too much of his time spent at Brighton when I saw their 2-1 loss to the Seagulls. However, he need time; indeed, so does everyone.”
While it is still early in Potter’s tenure at Chelsea, he has already laid out his vision for the team’s style of play. He said to Sky Sports: “Putting your best players in the spots where you believe they can have the biggest impact on the game is the name of the game.
“Of course, it all depends on your perspective and how the game unfolds, but as football fans, we all know that the score may turn against us at any time. In every game, we want to maintain a consistent style of play and roster composition in response to the strength of the opposition.
Because “it’s a bit of a minefield shall we say”: “because that’s something we’ve had to handle for the past five or six weeks, simply an enormous volume of games, crucial injuries to a few players,”
Having a constantly shifting roster in the midst of a season with unpredictable schedules implies that there is still some work to do in order to achieve the stability that Potter highlighted. It may take some time, but that’s a resource the management may have very little of if they’re going to be successful.
