Chelsea played attractive football under Graham Potter in his first match in charge despite the game ending in a 1-1 draw. There seemed to be a big improvement compared to the way they played under Thomas Tuchel in his last match in charge of the Blues.
The side was looking strong in every position, especially the attack and defence which were exceptional at the Bridge. Chelsea had a whopping 16 goal attempts against the Austrian giants proving how lethal they will be offensively this season.
They could have scored more than three goals against Red Bull Salzburg if they utilised their chances well which proves how good they can become under the Englishman. Most of the players the new manager started in the match were exceptional and they helped the team look lively.
Chelsea looked to be more attacking under the new boss and they were more entertaining to watch compared to when the German boss was in charge of the team.
However, two Chelsea players were gleaming in the match and they proved they can form one of the best-attacking duos in the league. Raheem Sterling and Mason Mount dominated most of the match and they were the players who made the difference in the match.
The two Englishmen showed great understanding yesterday playing together and they created numerous chances for each other, especially for Raheem Sterling. Mount seems to be thriving well when he plays in the central attack midfield role while Sterling does well on the left wing.
