Graham Potter singles out ‘fantastic’ Chelsea star & rates Mudryk display

Graham Potter hailed Enzo Fernandez after Chelsea’s win over Leicester City and shared his delight over Mykhailo Mudryk getting his first assist for the club.

Chelsea made it three wins from three in all competitions with a 3-1 victory over the Foxes on Saturday.

Ben Chilwell scored against his former team before Kai Havertz clipped a superb finish over the goalkeeper after a Leicester equaliser from Paston Daka.

Mateo Kovacic sealed the win for the Blues with Potter full of praise for his side after another improved and clinical performance.

Fernandez shone in midfield, providing a sublime assist for Havertz with Potter identifying him as the player who ‘gets the team moving’.

‘He’s a fantastic player and a young player,’ Potter said in a post-match press conference. ‘He’ll get better and better as he plays with us more. Because he has just arrived from another country and another league so you always have to adapt to that.

‘You can see his quality, he gets the ball and passes forward, he is progressing with his mentality and he gets the team moving and gives everything. It’s a nice combination to have.’

Mudryk thought he scored his first goal for the club in the second-half only to see his effort ruled out for offside. But he ended a run of six games without a goal or assist by setting up Kovacic’s goal.

After being left on the bench in the wins against Leeds United and Dortmund, Potter hailed the player’s attitude.

‘He will get better and better. He’s a young player, hasn’t had that much experienced so every game he will get better and better.

‘His attitude is fantastic, he wants to help the team, work for the team so I am delighted that he could assist and help us win.’

Potter added: ‘It has been a really good week. Three wins. A determined performance against Leeds and then a great one against Dortmund and to back it up today is really good from the players because it’s not easy to do that in the Premier League.

‘So I’m delighted for them. I’m delighted for the supporters, they were fantastic.’
