Which silverware is Chelsea most likely to win in Graham Potter’s first season in charge?

Chelsea currently look as though they are more likely to win the Champions League. They are top of their group (Group E), above second place RB Salzburg, third place AC Milan, and fourth place Dinamo Zagreb. Chelsea have played 4, won 2, drawn 1, and lost 1. They have scored 6 and let in 2, which gives them a +4 goal difference and 7 points.

If they continue with this form, they should easily progress through to the final 16, where they could end up facing several other European giants, such as Liverpool, Manchester City, Napoli, Club Brugge, Porto, Bayern Munich, PSG, or Real Madrid. Chelsea could also face Spurs, Marseille, Borussia Dortmund, or Benfica. Fans who buy Chelsea tickets know of the threat Premier League teams face.
