Graham Potter Promotes 4 Chelsea Young Players Against Manchester City - Chelsea manager, Graham Potter, chose to promote four young players ahead of the duel against Manchester City. Potter is predicted to do a lot of rotation because several key players are injured.

Chelsea will meet Man City in the third round of the Carabao Cup, Thursday (10/11/2022) early morning WIB. Chelsea in a not so good condition ahead of the duel played at the Etihad Stadium.

Chelsea have lost twice in the last three games. Despite the success of qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League, the Blues are now knocked out of the competition for the top four of the Premier League standings and are in 7th position.

In addition to inconsistent performances, Chelsea were also hit by problems with player injuries. This made Potter have to rack his brain.

Injury Storm at Chelsea

Last season, when Chelsea lost to Arsenal, six main players were sidelined through injury. In particular, Chelsea had to play without a number of key players at the back.

Chelsea's two main wing-backs are injured, Ben Chilwell and Reece James. In addition, Potter also has not been able to play Kepa Arizzabalaga due to injury. Before the injury, Kepa was at his best.

In addition to these three names, there is Wesley Fofana who adds to the long list of injuries to Chelsea defenders.

Then, the Blues also lost two key players at the back. The absence of N'Golo Kante had a major influence on the Blues' midfield. Then, the young player Carney Chukwuemeka who was expected to be an alternative was also injured.

Promote Young Players

Graham Potter made an important decision ahead of the game against Man City. Because many players were injured, the former Brighton manager promoted four players from the youth team. Two of them are in defense.

Of the four young players who were promoted, there is one who has already made his debut in the first team, namely Lewis Hall. Last season, Lewis Hall played in the FA Cup match against Chesterfield.

Lewis Hall may be playing because of Ben Chiwell's injury. Then there's Bashir Humphreys who might play if Potter wants to give Thiago Silva a break.
