Carabao Cup: It was a step forward for us – Potter reacts as Chelsea lose to Man City


Chelsea manager, Graham Potter, has highlighted the positives despite their 2-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup.

The Blues are out of the competition, thanks to goals from Riyad Mahrez and Julian Alvarez.

It is now back-to-back defeats for Potter’s men, who lost 1-0 to Arsenal in the Premier League last weekend.

But despite losing at The Etihad, Potter believed there were plenty of reasons to be encouraged by Chelsea’s performance beyond the efforts of the teenager.

“I thought there were quite a few positives, to be honest. Obviously we are disappointed by the result but in terms of how we played, we created some good chances. There was a better structure and a better performance level. The team looked closer to what we want it to look like.

“The boys had great courage, they tried, obviously against a top team. Their keeper got man of the match, I think, which tells a little bit of the story. Overall, I think it was a step forward for us,” Potter said.
