This is the first time Potter has attended a Champions League fixture, never mind managed in one. But he does have plenty of European experience, having taken Swedish minnows Ostersund to the Round of 32 in the 2017-18 Europa League, knocking out Galatasaray along the way, as well as winning 2-1 at Arsenal. No wet-behind-the-ears parvenu he.

Chelsea are strong favourites to give Potter a winning start to his reign. They certainly could do with the three points after last week’s abject display against Dinamo Zagreb. History suggests Salzburg will comply – the Austrians have lost on all of their three previous visits to England – though they did give Liverpool a scare at Anfield in 2019, drawing level having been three down, only to lose 4-3. Kick off tonight is at 8pm BST. It’s on!

4 minutes: Possession of a Salzburg ship on the edge of their chest. Havertz tries to shoot the ball to Cohn but his effort veers too far to the right for Aubameyang, who tries a fine knock with the ball falling on his shoulder. It flies off target.

Graham Potter talks to BT Sport. “We went to get good experience and good knowledge. I won’t give up too much, you can keep guessing! We have been working for a few days and hopefully we can use the qualities of the players. The response has been great from the boys. Salzburg has a clear idea of ​​how they want to play. They did a great job to get here, they are a strong team so we are looking forward to the match and to the challenge. There is a feeling we have to respond. We have to play well. I forgot I actually went to Champions League Game! It was Manchester City vs Dortmund. We were exploring. City won 7-1, so I guess I just got it out of my head.”

I got it out of his head okay. Manchester City did not score more than two goals against Dortmund. Is Potter thinking of Schalke 04, Dortmund’s arch-rival in the Ruhr, who beat City 7-0 in 2019? For shame, Graham! They will not call this decline in North Rhine-Westphalia. In both cases, the plot thickens.

Preamble

Last Tuesday in Zagreb might also be the last year, given everything that has happened since then. But let’s not talk about this point. Here we are all now, with Graham Potter at the wheel, and Chelsea Need a score to start their campaign in the fifth group.

This is the first time that Potter has attended a Champions League Match, I don’t mind managed in one. But he has plenty of European experience, leading Sweden’s young Östersund to the round of 32 in the 2017-18 Europa League, beating Galatasaray along the way, as well as a 2-1 win over Arsenal. Do not wet the ears behind the parvenu he.

Chelsea is a strong candidate to give Potter a successful start in his reign. They can certainly take advantage of the three points after their poor performance last week against Dinamo Zagreb. History suggests that Salzburg will comply – the Austrians have lost on all three previous visits to England – even though they gave Liverpool a consternation at Anfield in 2019, drawing after being third, losing 4-3. Tonight kicks off at 8 PM GMT. It’s up!
