Graham Potter's first Chelsea team selection may prove good news for four fringe players

Carney Chukwuemeka

Chelsea made a bold statement by shelling out a reported £20million to sign Chukwuemeka from Aston Villa this summer. The teenager was threatening to become a regular under Steven Gerrard with 13 appearances in all competitions last season, but he is yet to appear for the Blues in the Premier League. 

Although he is unlikely to become one of the first names on the team sheet any time soon, Chukwuemeka could soon start to build a bank of first-team games with Potter potentially putting greater emphasis on a trio of midfielders, rather than a duo. The Villa academy graduate has shone at various England youth levels, including the Under-19s who won the European Championships this year.
