So what does Bruno make of his first days as Chelsea Interim boss?

Bruno Saltor has no idea whether he will still be in charge of the team when Chelsea take on Wolves at the weekend, but the interim boss has vowed to keep giving his all for the club.

The Spaniard oversaw a pretty mundane 0-0 draw with an equally off-key Liverpool on Tuesday night - a match which will not stand alongside the memorable battles between the clubs in seasons gone by.

The Blues should have won though. They had two goals ruled out after VAR checks and had enough clear-cut opportunities to have inflicted a fourth defeat in a row on the once mighty Reds.

The weaknesses which did for Graham Potter could hardly expect to have vanished overnight just because a new man was in charge.

"We created enough chances to win the game," Saltor said. "The boys gave everything. They played with their heart and you can't ask for more.

"They are human beings and the confidence has to be there. I know they miss chances but what they could affect most was the attitude and the effort and that was there.

"They score a lot of goals in training, but coming to a game is completely different. We've been speaking about it and working on it and we need to keep going."

The 42-year-old Spaniard acknowledged that the unsettling nature of the past 48 hours had not helped the cause, because the players had enjoyed working with Potter.

"It's been really difficult for the players because it's not the first time they've been in this situation this season," he said. "As a player, you invest a lot in the managers as well and there's been great relationships with Graham and the players and they suffer as well.

"Graham has been very supportive with them after leaving, and you could see that on the pitch today. The boys gave everything.

"It was really difficult [for me] to enjoy but I've tried to focus on being the best version of myself, trying to help the boys and be supportive."
