Potter replicating Brighton form at Chelsea

Incredible stats crunched by The Sun now show that Potter is actually replicating Brighton's form from last season at Stamford Bridge.

The tactician has posted almost identical results at Chelsea from what he had at Brighton after 23 Premier League games last season.

Chelsea currently sits tenth in the Premier League standings with a paltry 31 points, having won eight, drawn seven and lost eight fixtures.

The Blues have scored just 23 goals in the process and conceded 23.

By comparison after the same number of games under Potter, in Brighton's 2021-22 campaign, the Seagulls had seven wins, 12 draws and four defeats.

At the time, the side, who sat ninth in the standings, had scored 25 goals and conceded 23 goals to rack up 33 points.
