Graham Potter looking to avoid 11-year Champions League streak for Chelsea when they welcome Red Bull Salzburg to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
The Blues’ resume plays with the former Brighton & Hove Albion manager being in charge for the first time since Thomas Tuchel was fired.
The Englishman hinted that he will be attending his first-ever Champions League match during his press conference before the game.
After Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb last week, Potter’s top job will be to help Chelsea get going in this competition.
If Chelsea fails to score against the Austrian champions, they will be much behind schedule going into their matchup with AC Milan.
Such circumstances would also end an 11-year streak that has been active since Carlo Ancelotti was in charge during the 2010-11 campaign.
Not since then have Chelsea gone two successive games without scoring a goal in the same Champions League season.
The West London outfit posted a goalless draw with Copenhagen in the second leg of their last-16 tie before succumbing to a 1-0 defeat against Manchester United in the opening game of their quarter-final contest.
Chelsea have failed to find the back of the net in two of their seven fixtures this season, while it took a penalty to get on the scoresheet in the top-flight opener at Everton.
