‘He brings something different’ – Graham Potter reveals Chelsea missed this important player

Chelsea boss Graham Potter has claimed Chelsea missed centre-back Wesley Fofana.

Fofana scored the winner for Chelsea in the 1-0 victory over Leeds United. It was his first start for Chelsea since he picked up a knee injury against AC Milan in the Champions League last October.

Speaking about Fofana, Chelsea boss Graham Potter said: “We’ve missed him. I think it was the Milan game at home when he suffered his injury and that was a long time ago.

“He brings something different: physicality, defends big spaces, allows us to defend a little higher because he has the pace to recover. In the box, he can attack the ball well. He’s an important player for us.”
