It was a great leap in his managerial career, but pundits opined that he would have to battle with some egos from elite players to high-ranking staff.

However, it seems the former Brighton manager is moving head-on and progressing with his new club.

Graham Potter had overseen five Chelsea matches since taking over as Chelsea manager.
