'Potterball' was in full flow during Chelsea's win over Salzburg, the footage is sensational

'Potterball' was in full flow during Chelsea's win over RB Salzburg and fans are very excited about the future.

Chelsea booked their place in the next round of the Champions League after beating Salzburg 2-1 on Tuesday.

Mateo Kovacic opened the scoring in the 23rd minute, with Junior Adamu leveling just after the break.

It could have been an easier night for Chelsea had Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang completed a sensational team move in first-half.

The Blues produced a brilliant passage of play, completing nine passes to go from one end of the pitch to the other.

Kepa Arrizabalaga started the attack, with Kalidou Koulibaly and Jorginho exchanging passes.

Jorginho, Raheem Sterling and Kovacic then combined brilliantly, hitting one-touch passes to set up Havertz.

The German ran through on goal and picked out Aubameyang, who fluffed his lines and failed to round off the move with a goal.

However, it's a glimpse into Potter's style rubbing off on the team following his appointment last month.

Naturally, Chelsea fans loved what they saw and are excited for the future.

One Twitter user wrote: "When Potter gets his own players Chelsea will be a problem."

A second tweeted: "We’re gonna be a serious force soon."

A third added: "This would have been top 3 Chelsea goals I have ever seen, shades of Arsenal vs Norwich."


Speaking after his side's 2-1 win in Austria, Potter praised Havertz and the performance produced by his team.

"It was an amazing finish, right in the top corner and it makes my job a lot easier when they can do that," he said.

"It's great for him and I'm really pleased because he has been fighting and trying his best and is nearly there to scoring more. "Today he needed to score that to help us through. It's fantastic."

Potter added: "I'm delighted (with the win). It was a fantastic performance from the players. They showed real courage here in an intense atmosphere with the way they put you under pressure and I thought we controlled it well and created some chances.

"I was disappointed to only be one-nil up at half-time. There was one mistake and one action from them which can happen but we responded really well.

"It was a great goal from Kai and overall, we deserved to go through."
