Chelsea Coach Potter Asks Fans to Get Behind the Team

Chelsea coach Graham Potter has called on fans to stand behind their team in the eighth-finals of the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

The European tournament must save the season of the London top club. Chelsea is in tenth place in the Premier League and was eliminated prematurely in both the FA Cup and the League Cup.

“Supporters always have the right to express their opinion. They, like us, have suffered from poor results,” said Potter. “But the fans also know the importance of tomorrow’s game. We want to make it difficult for Dortmund here and need the fans for that.”

Borussia Dortmund was 1-0 too strong for Chelsea in the first game. The Germans won all games this year – ten in total – in the league, German Cup and Champions League.

It is not yet clear whether Reece James can participate against Dortmund. The defender missed Saturday’s 1-0 home game against Leeds United with a thigh injury. American attacker Christian Pulisic returns to the selection.
