Graham Potter, although being impressed by what he has seen from Joao Felix, acknowledged that the team’s scoring issues cannot be resolved by the player alone
As they prepare for Thursday’s derby at Craven Cottage, the Blues are three points behind their west London neighbours Fulham in the Premier League standings after a miserable autumn and winter run.
Fans were thrilled on Wednesday when Felix completed his loan transfer from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea, but Potter has cautioned that for the squad to get out of this difficult situation, everyone must stand up.
When asked if Felix might be Chelsea’s solution to their striker difficulties, Potter responded, “My thoughts are that you have to improve the team and it’s not just one individual to cure your problems. Fix the team, attack more effectively, and generate more opportunities. Any player there who scores at that point will help us win.
He has been working out and playing in games, so he is prepared physically. Going from one country to another is never completely predictable, but how long it takes varies from player to player. Potter observes a player who is assertive and capable of controlling the game.
“He is able to receive, receive in confined situations, and make passes. I’m definitely looking forward to working with him because he is a good addition”, added Potter.
