Chelsea, under the tutelage of Graham Potter turn over a new leaf at Stamford bridge against Dortmund as the London Giant strongly defeat Borrusia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 with a surprising comeback having lost the first leg to the latter.
Considerably, Chelsea has surely been in a very suffocating stage in the league and all completions, losing a total of Eleven (11) matches, four (4) draws and three (3) wins in their last nineteen (19) matches in all competition. By and large these records constitute to what has made the team been deplorable as they have been lately.
However, as I remark earlier, Chelsea has turn over a new Leaf, and quite number of football lovers, and supporters could sensed the winning spirit that has been conjure on the player by Graham Potter as showcased against Dortmund.
Mind you the coach’s reinforcement and response to the real word activities in the game against Dortmund was absolutely remarkable and promising as well. And this subordinate the feeling that the team’s performance is gradually getting better.
Prior to the match, despite Chelsea’s win against Leed United, the fans were frightened with fear which gnaw at their timid heart that the London club might part ways from the UEFA Championship league market but remarkably it was otherwise and they felt relax with the outcome.
After Chelsea victorious qualification to the UEFA Champions League quarter- final, it can be proven that the team still has a lucrative opportunity to eradicate the thought that Graham Potter will encounter a trophy less season.
More so, the thought that Graham might prospectively achieve what the likes of Di Matteo, Chelsea’s former Coach who guided Chelsea to victory in 2012 UEFA Champions League Final, defeating Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena acquired for the team.
Perhaps, Di Matteo could be considered as one of the memorable coach Chelsea has ever had, he won the Club’s first UEFA champions League, at a time when the team witness a turbulent season in the domestic arena just as Potter is witnessing currently, Chelsea couldn’t made the top four sit when Di Matteo won the Champions League trophy which automatically grant the team a ticket and assurance to partake in the following season’s Champions League.
Similar to the occurrence that occurred in 2012, Potter defeat Dortmund just the way Chelsea escape to the quarterfinals by defeating Napoli with an historic come back in the Stamford Bridge in 2012 under the aegis of Di Matteo.
Though, Thomas Tuchel effortlessly won the round of 16 and successfully guided Chelsea to win its second UEFA Champions League in 2021, defeating Manchester City in the Final.
Owing to the aforementioned records, the feeling that Graham Potter may eventually achieve what the mentioned coaches achieved for the club keeps on roaming, tossing and turning intermittently in the mind.
Surprisingly ,Chelsea knocked Dortmund out of the UEFA League round of 16, what your take on this? Do you also subscribe or submit to the school of thought that the London Giant, under the tutelage of Graham Potter, could achieve the remarkable, even when the chance is apparently slim.
Honorably , we look forward to acknowledging your response in the comment section.
