Report: What Graham Potter did to Chelsea players who weren't going to clap the fans after last night's game

Reports have claimed that Chelsea manager Graham Potter called back a number of Chelsea players who were headed straight down the tunnel after last night’s victory at the San Siro.

According to The Telegraph, the Englishman wanted the few attempting to celebrate privately to enjoy the moment with the fans, who had been present at another fantastic European away day.

The Blues had put on another stellar showing in the Champions League, this time at the home of the Italian Champions, AC Milan.

The result gave them a major chance of finishing top of their European group, after suffering a tough opening to their campaign.

Consecutive dominant victories under Potter has put them in command, with the feel-good factor beginning to return surrounding the Blues.

This was noticeable among the supporters present last night, with oles being heard as the club comfortably kept possession in the final stages of the game.

Following their great support, fans will be pleased with that The Telegraph are reporting, that Potter made sure their efforts from the stands were applauded by all of the first team players.

The former Brighton manager obviously has a difficult job in maintaining the happiness of a big squad which is extremely talented.

The challenge is clear after seeing the starting side played last night, with none of the goalscorers from last weekend’s win against Wolves starting the big game.

Up until now though, things look to be going well. Players are also being open in their praise for the man in charge.

Team selection will be the point of discussion again in the upcoming league game against Aston Villa. After making seven changes following the last game against Milan, it is likely that rotation will be evident again for the trip to Villa Park.
