Graham Potter reveal he is happy with the progress of Chelsea under him as the Blues prepare to face Wolves in the Premier League.

Chelsea manager Graham Potter says he pleased with progress of the team stating that they are taking it game by game.

The Blues are yet to lose a game under their new manager with their recent win coming from the Champions League.

Chelsea defeated Italian team AC Milan in the group stage game to keep their chances of going through alive.

“I think we’ve made a little bit of progress in terms of my first day to now, as you would expect and hope. But there’s a long way to go and I think the thing is we have to just focus on the next match. It’s as simple as that.

“We’ve got this incredible amount of games to play, so rather than think too much about what will happen at the end of the season we’ll just focus on the next game.”

Potter side will host Wolves in the Premier League this week side who sacked their manager recently.

Speaking about available players to face Wolves this weekend, Potter says midfielder N’golo Kante is back in training.

“He’s doing more and more integration with the team. He’s still not ready for the weekend but getting closer.

“It is what it is, there’s nothing we can do, the injury happened and now it’s about trying to get him back fit and getting him as ready as we can so he can play for a sustained period.

“He’s been in and out with injuries over a period of time so we have to make sure that when he’s back he’s back for good and strong and enjoying his football. So there’s no frustration from my perspective, it’s just something we have to deal with.’

He also added that the injury of Wesley Fofana is not too serious and might be back before the World Cup.

“Wesley’s knee’s not as bad as we thought after the game, so that’s good because it was a cause for concern at the time, but it will still be a few weeks I think. It’s considerably better than it could be, but he will obviously be missing for a few weeks,’ he explained.

“It’s just a knee strain so there’s a possibility we might see him play again before the World Cup. It depends on how his rehab goes, I don’t want to put too much of a timescale on it, but there’s a chance of that.”
