Chelsea boss, Graham Potter has singled out Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz for special praise following his side’s Champions League round of 16 second-leg 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.
The Englishman watched as goals from Sterling and Havertz gave Chelsea a 2-1 aggregate win against Dortmund, having lost 1-0 in the first leg in Germany last month.
Speaking at his post-match press conference after the game, Potter said that both Sterling and Havertz were excellent for the Blues against Dortmund.
Potter said, “I thought Raheem alongside Kai was excellent and I was really pleased for him too.
“He played a slightly different role, but I thought he was really effective, and he caused their backline a lot of problems.”
He added, “Raheem’s a goalscorer and has plenty of experience in this competition, so we just felt that if we could get him and Kai into those attacking areas, then we could have some joy in front of goal and thankfully, those two both scored.
“Overall, it was a great team performance, and we’re through to the quarter-finals, which is the next step for us.”
