Fulham-Chelsea Preview

Chelsea boss Graham Potter acknowledges he will need to hold "awkward conversations" with members of his squad following their remarkable spending spree in the recent transfer window.

The Blues broke the Premier League transfer record to acquire Enzo Fernandez from Benfica on deadline day, having already signed Mykhaylo Mudryk, Benoit Badiashile, Andrey Santos, David Datro Fofana, Joao Felix and Noni Madueke earlier in January.

Ahead of Friday's Premier League London derby against Fulham, Potter highlighted the difficulties Chelsea's newfound depth may cause him.
