Chelsea FC take on Red Bull Salzburg in Group E of the Champion’s League on Wednesday, with Graham Potters looking to win his first match in charge of the club.
Salzburg, on the other hand, recorded a 1-1 draw against AC Milan last week at the Red Bull arena.
The 47-year-old Chelsea manager had gained 13 points in Brighton’s six matches this season, having guided the Seagulls to their highest-ever top flight finish by finishing ninth last season.
However, Wednesday’s visit of Salzburg will be Potter’s first ever Champions League match, it will be interesting to see whether the Englishman sticks with the three-man defence which brought him huge success with Brighton, especially as it is one which the majority of his new group are also used to in recent times.
It remains to be seen which personality Potter generally favours in a central role; with the likes of Pierre-Emerick aubameyang, Kai Havertz, and Raheem Sterling to select from, he is clearly not lacking options.
Salzburg, meanwhile, are competing in the Champions League group stage for the fourth successive campaign, having reached the knockout stages for the first time last season.
They have won seven of their opening eight domestic games so far, and began with a massive 1-1 draw at home to Italian champions Milan in the Champions League.
However, it is expected that Chelsea will be hugely motivated to win this match under their new manager.
