Graham Potter suggests he will start a 28-year-old for Chelsea against Dortmund.


Raheem Sterling will start for Chelsea on Tuesday, Graham Potter has intimated to the Independent.

The Blues have a short turnaround before tomorrow’s Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund. This will be their biggest game of the season.

They were penalised for failing to take advantage of their chances on the break in Germany. They must overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg.

To play its part tomorrow, Stamford Bridge will need to be at its best. And they will at least be encouraged by recently witnessing a triumph under Potter.

Also, Wesley Fofana’s goal gave Chelsea a 1-0 victory over Leeds United at the weekend, capping a commanding performance.

Potter also made the decision to field a back three against the team. A team that was in danger of being demoted. They are now confident that he would most likely lose his job if his team lost.

Furthermore, the change paid off, and it now appears that it will continue for the important European endeavour.

Sterling benefited from his position in the new system as well. Potter now asserts that he anticipates seeing him once more when tomorrow comes around.

He said: “His goalscoring record in the Champions League speaks for itself. He’s a proven campaigner in that competition. We’re delighted with that, we’re looking forward to him on the pitch on Tuesday, hopefully enjoying his football.”

Mykhailo Mudryk will likely make another substitute appearance as a result of the return of the England international, but he has already demonstrated that if given enough time, he can be effective in this role.

A front three similar to the one that played against Leeds is most likely. Joao Felix and Raheem Sterling will also be tasked with scoring by Potter, something Chelsea has to do at least once to stay in the game.
