Despite the loss to Manchester City in the Premier League Graham Potter is not disappointed in his side performance as he three of his key player suffered injury.

Chelsea manager Grham Potter stated that he is happy with the performance of his player against Manchester City despite the 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues hosted and suffered defeat in the hands of Pep Guardiola’s City after second half substitute Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez combine to score.

Speaking after the game Potter stated that: “It was a much better performance when you consider we lost Raheem and Christian.

“The lads gave everything, it was spirited and we had some opportunities against a top team.

“I liked what we tried to do against a top side. We were competitive and had spirit on the pitch, courage in attack and took responsibility at the back. Apart from the result, as we hate to lose, I’m proud of the players.”

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount suffered injury before the match and the Blues also lost Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic in the match.

‘It is tough at the moment and certainly doesn’t make it any easier. I feel for the boys of course as it’s one of those times but we have to stick together.

“It was disappointing to lose the guys early on but the players that came onto the pitch gave everything and that’s all you can ask for.

“It’s too soon for an update. Raheem was with his first action of the game with a back-heel and Christian had some contact on his knee so fingers crossed it’s not too bad.

“Mason Mount also had a kick yesterday in training, he’ll hopefully be okay for the weekend. I’ve never experienced anything like it but we just have to carry on.”
