Potter: We will do our best to beat Manchester City
Chelsea coach Graham Potter has commented on his team’s preparations to face Chelsea, tomorrow, Wednesday, in the third round of the League Cup.
“It’s not about my pride or anything like that,” Potter told the press conference ahead of the League Cup clash with Chelsea. We have to go to Manchester City and be competitive. We will do our best and prepare.”
He added: “I would be lying if I said I didn’t expect this at some point. I think we’ve had six weeks where we’ve played 13 games, eight away games, that had an impact on everything. Injuries to key players. It’s a process I went through at Brighton.” .
On the injuries, he commented: “Reese was out today with little work, Jorginho has a slight problem with his foot, and it is doubtful that he will participate tomorrow, “Kepa is still not available. We’ll see for the World Cup. He must take it day in and day out. Not very positive.”
On Raheem Sterling’s decline: “I think you can tell his reaction is honest. Players go through not-so-positive moments in their careers and they have good moments where everything they touch turns into gold. The team is not doing as well as I want it to, we need to improve the team and improve the structure. “.
Manchester City will face Chelsea in the third round of the League Cup tomorrow, Wednesday, at ten in the evening.
