- Kante out with injury
- Chelsea missing three key players
- Wants to improve fitness levels
WHAT HAPPENED? Chelsea will miss the services of N'Golo Kante after the midfielder suffered a setback in his recovery from injury. There is a possibility that the French international will be ruled out of the upcoming World Cup.
WHAT THEY SAID: Asked about Chelsea's injury woes in a press conference, Potter said: "I don't think you should blame everything on luck that's for sure. I think we can have a look and see what we can do better. Obviously, I've been here a few weeks so I haven't got the answers completely. But clearly, we want to always try to improve and that's an area that we can probably improve."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Before Kante, full-back Reece James and centre-back Wesley Fofana were also ruled out of action due to respective knee injuries.
