Chelsea boss Graham Potter reveals what he is doing ‘to help him relax’ after morale-boosting Champions League win
GRAHAM POTTER admitted a weight has been lifted following victory in the Champions League – and turned to Elton John in relaxation.
Chelsea beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 to progress into the quarter-finals, giving the club a much needed morale-booster.

Potter was asked if he listens to any songs to help him relax under pressure and he responded: “I’m still standing.”
That is John’s 1983 classic from his Too Low for Zero album.
Chelsea travel to Leicester off the back of victory over Leeds at Stamford Bridge last weekend.
But they remain in tenth, despite getting back to winning ways as Potter admitted a weight has been lifted with recent wins.
He said: “Yes, in some ways.
“It’s not something I get too bogged down with. I am the same as every Chelsea fan. It’s better if you win.
“It’s really difficult to just play a game of football at whatever level and just come home and everything is fine.
“That’s not to say I am a disaster zone around the family.”

Chelsea are nine points off fourth-placed Tottenham and winning the Champions League could be their easiest route into next season’s competition.
But Potter is refusing to prioritise the club’s European campaign to their dwindling league hopes.
He said: “I understand the question, but I think it’s almost second guessing loads of things.
“You can tie yourself in knots and ultimately football is just keep it simple. Next match, try to win.”
