"You can imagine my focus is on Chelsea," Potter told reporters on Tuesday. "I understand that all the players have ambition and want to play for different reasons, for their families, careers or World Cups. That's all fine but it's my job to select the right team for whatever game. Not saying I am right all the time, I am not but somebody has got to make the call.

"With Christian I would say he has been fantastic around the place, been really good with team mates, contributed against Wolverhampton Wanderers. He is pushing for a place, pushing for a start. Things change quickly in football and he needs to be ready." Chelsea face Brentford in the league later on Wednesday.
