Crystal Palace boss Vieira: Potter deserves Chelsea chance

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira says Graham Potter deserves his chance at Chelsea.

Potter will make his Premier League debut as Chelsea manager tomorrow at Palace.

Vieira said, “We just look at what he has been doing at Brighton, and analysing the first game [Chelsea] played in the Champions League.

“Seeing if there is something we can take to allow ourselves to perform in a better way.

“When a manager works well for a couple of years, he deserves a chance in one of the top teams. When you look at his record in the last couple of years, he's been doing fantastically well with Brighton and today he's with Chelsea. “I wish him all the best – after the game on Saturday."
