Chelsea boss Potter takes 2 questions after Cup exit

Chelsea boss Graham Potter took just two questions after their Carabao Cup defeat at Manchester City.

The Blues were beaten 2-0 on Wednesday night.

Potter later said, “I thought there were quite a few positives. Obviously, we’re disappointed with the result but in terms of how we played, we created some good chances, there was a better structure and performance level.

“The team looked closer to what we want it to look like [compared to Arsenal]. The boys had great courage and they tried against a top team. Their goalkeeper got man of the match and I think that tells a little bit of the story. But overall, I think it was a step forward for us.”

On Lewis Hall’s performance, he added: “I really enjoyed his performance. He took responsibility, took the ball in tight areas, attacked the box, and could’ve scored a couple of goals on another day. So it was a really nice performance, a mature performance I thought. He is a quiet lad but goes about his work. I’ve been really impressed with him.”
