Former Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur defender William Gallas is yet to be convinced by the new coach in West London, with Graham Potter's only match in charge being his team's 1-1 draw against RB Salzburg in the Champions League. 

Fixture postponements and the international break have meant Potter hasn't been in action since early September and will be his second game at the reins this weekend against Crystal Palace

But despite not yet having had the chance to really prove himself, Gallas is already asking questions of the former Brighton and Hove Albion manager.

"He looks very calm, and looks like he likes to have conversations with his players from what I see from the outside, but I don't know if he's like this in reality. I'm still waiting.

"He did a good job at Brighton, but Chelsea is not Brighton, he has gone to another level with more expectations, more pressure, so it will be good to see if he can be the right manager."
