Chelsea: Potter told to change Raheem Sterling’s playing position

Former Chelsea defender, William Gallas, has urged manager Graham Potter to change forward Raheem Sterling playing position in the Blues squad.

Gallas said that if Potter wants to get the best out of the Forward, he should play him on the right or left of the attacking front three.

Sterling joined Chelsea from Manchester City in the summer transfer window.

The England international is capable of playing across the frontline.

“If Graham Potter wants to get the best from Raheem Sterling, he has to play on the right or left of a three, that’s how Sterling was being used at a high level before at Liverpool and Manchester City,” Gallas told Genting Casino.

“He’s always played there. So for me it is difficult to understand why, sometimes, a manager wants to play players out of position.

“After the Zagreb win, I think Potter has to play Sterling in a front three and not how he used him in the last match when he was playing wing-back.

“It was very difficult for Sterling to play there. Play him in his position and let him do what he needs to do.”
