UEFA Champions League

The Only Player In Chelsea's Starting XI That Hasn't Played Any Game Since Potter Replaced Tuchel

Graham Potter, in his quest to find the right balance for Chelsea, has tried many Starting Lineups and gave chances to different Players in the team.

Although, Graham Potter seems to have frozen Pierre Emerick Aubameyang out of the team, the Gabonese Forward was his main man in the first round of the UEFA Champions League last year.

Kalidou Koulibaly, Edouard Mendy, Christian Pulisic and Armando Broja have all made appearances under Graham Potter despite their bad form or injury this season.

The Former Brighton and Hove Albion Manager has also given chances to numerous young Players including Lewis Hall, Carney Chukwuemeka, Conor Gallagher and Bashir Humphreys.

Even the Players that Chelsea signed in January have all played for the West London club. Mykhaylo Mudryk, Joao Felix, Enzo Fernandez, Noni Madueke, Benoit Badiashile and David Datro Fofana have all made their debut for the West London club.

However, there's an important Player in Chelsea team that has never made a single appearance under Graham Potter. This player is so important that he helped Chelsea to win the UEFA Champions League two seasons ago but, Graham Potter is yet to play him.

In August last year, N'Golo Kante sustained a long term injury during a Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge. The Frenchman has been absent in Chelsea squad for over 6 Months, during which Chelsea sacked Thomas Tuchel and replaced him Graham Potter.

This is why N'Golo Kante still remains as the only Player in Chelsea first team this season that hasn't played under Graham Potter. The World Cup Winner is close to making an appearance for Chelsea as he returned to training on Tuesday.
