Chelsea stars ‘annoyed’ at Graham Potter for 2 reasons as boss makes ‘bizarre’ decisions | Football | Sport


“The history of the Premier League tells you that if you wish to win and be competitive, then the perfect teams just about persist with one formation after which [make] personnel changes in the event that they will not be at it. Those Chelsea players are still greater than adequate enough and ok to play in a single formation.

“Allow them to construct some relationships, construct some confidence. Each time you’re tweaking the team with 5 or 6 players and each time you’re tweaking the formation, top players get annoyed. They get annoyed.”

Potter has often used unorthodox players in wing-back roles as a part of his preferred three-man defence, which has even seen each Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic operate in those wide roles. Belgium forward Leandro Trossard successfully played as a left wing-back under Potter, and has been linked with a reunion in January.
