Graham Potter's reign at Chelsea is now officially underway. In Chelsea's first match since manager Thomas Tuchel was fired last week, the Blues settled for a 1-1 draw to Salzburg in the Champions League on Wednesday.

A second-half goal from Raheem Sterling became Chelsea's first of the Champions League campaign after a deadlocked first half, but Salzburg found the equalizer through Noah Okafor.

The Potter era started at Chelsea with a 1-1 draw over Red Bull Salzburg, and a glimpse at the sort of football the 47-year-old will aim to deliver at Stamford Bridge.

There were hallmarks of his predecessor Thomas Tuchel's first game in charge -- a 0-0 draw against Wolves -- given in that match the Blues played three at the back and dominated the ball, recording 78.9% possession that night. 

In Potter's three full seasons in charge at Brighton, his team averaged 51.7%, 50.7% and 54.3% possession so there was no surprise that armed with better players here, Chelsea upped that number to 70.8%.

However, one thing that Tuchel's Chelsea and Potter's Brighton have also had in common was a wastefulness in front of goal.

The Blues ended this 90 minutes ruing several presentable opportunities, the last of which came when Armando Broja blazed over the crossbar in injury time. At least they scored, but the defensive vulnerability that did so much damage to Tuchel's Chelsea over time appeared once again as Thiago Silva's botched interception allowed Junior Adamu to cross and Noah Okafor to equalise.
