Potter opens up on transfer splurge

Chelsea boss Graham Potter has defended the clubs transfer business as he insisted that it has "changed the direction of the team".

He told Sky Sports: "You look at the age of the players, where they are in their careers, a combination of the investment in the transfer fee and salary has made good sense for us and where we're at.

"We've got a hungry group of players who are ready to help the team now and also grow and grow as the club develops.

"The players that we have signed, the age of them, we have changed the direction of the team to where they needed to go, it is now about making it function."
