The Blues recovered from a 1-0 defeat in Dortmund in the first leg and turned in an impressive performance to progress 2-1 on aggregate thanks to goals from Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz.

The second goal was somewhat controversial as Havertz scored from the penalty spot after missing his first effort from 12 yards.

Chelsea were quite fortunate to get a penalty in the first place, with Marius Wolf harshly penalised for handball from a Ben Chilwell cross.

Havertz saw his penalty kick hit the post, rebound and cleared by Dortmund midfielder Salih Ozcan.

However, replays showed that Ozcan had encroached before the kick was taken so Havertz got another go and found the back of the net.

Potter admitted that it was very fortunate for his side, while he also didn’t know a lot about what was going on during the incident.

‘Not a massive amount, to be honest, I knew they’d encroached,’ Potter told BT Sport.
