Chelsea boss Graham Potter takes on his former club Brighton in a behind-closed-doors friendly

Chelsea manager Graham Potter faced his former club Brighton in a behind-closed-doors friendly on Saturday.

This weekend’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Liverpool at Stamford Bridge was postponed due to a lack of police resources ahead of the Queen’s state funeral on Monday.

Meanwhile, Brighton’s fixture against Crystal Palace was called off due to a rail strike.

As a result, the two teams faced off in a friendly match without spectators, in a bid to gain some form of match action ahead of the international break.

Carney Chukwuemeka, who has yet to feature for the Blues following his summer move from Aston Villa, scored both goals as Chelsea triumphed 2-1.

The friendly came just eight days after Potter left Brighton to take up a new challenge at Stamford Bridge.

The English manager made wholesale changes to the side that drew 1-1 with Red Bull Salzburg in midweek.

Armando Broja, Denis Zakaria, Conor Gallagher, Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Trevoh Chalobah were all given runouts.

Potter’s first Premier League match in charge of Chelsea will be against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday October 1.
