Graham Potter, the manager of Chelsea, has shown confidence in Mykhaylo Mudryk after the winger gave the Blues his first assist against Leicester.

Mykhaylo Mudryk cost Chelsea F.C. a lot when he joined the club in the January transfer window, and the Blues have found it difficult to get immediate results from him. Graham Potter has heaped praise on the Ukrainian winger for his first assist for his new team on Saturday, when he set up Mateo Kovacic for Chelsea’s third goal away at Leicester.
Speaking after Chelsea’s win at the King Power, Potter said: “He’ll [Mudryk] get better and better. He’s a young player that hasn’t that much experience, so each game he’ll get better and better. Mykhaylo’s attitude is fantastic, I love his approach.”

At Chelsea this season, Mudryk was added as part of a major team restructure. Mykhaylo Mudryk made his debut against Liverpool at Anfield, where he displayed exceptional pace and dribbling, but he hasn’t been impressive since. He will be hoping that his assist on Saturday is a sign of things to come while wearing a Blues shirt.
Prior to the international break, the Blue have just one game left, which they will play on March 18 against relegation-threatened Everton. Potter’s team, after a challenging start to 2023, needs three points to make it four wins in a row.
