AN ITALIAN newspaper has hilariously mocked Graham Potter as Harry Potter as they revealed three spells for AC Milan to stop Chelsea.
The Blues play the defending Serie A champions in the Champions League tonight at Stamford Bridge.
Potter’s side are currently at the bottom of the group after failing to win either of their first two games.
But although the Rossoneri are top of the table with four points from six, Chelsea remain favourites.
Ahead of the clash, however, Gazzetta dello Sport amusingly outlined three magic spells Milan will need to cast to beat the Premier League side.
And they decided the best way to demonstrate them in the issue was a shot of the blues manager’s face over Wizard Potter while he was flying a broomstick.
Gazzetta’s master plan for Chelsea’s downfall begins with them stopping Raheem Sterling.
The England international, who left Manchester City for Stamford Bridge in the summer, has scored four goals in nine games for his new club so far.
The second was for Milan boss Stefano Pioli, whom they hailed as a magician to unleash Rafael Leao on the wing.
The 23-year-old Portugal international has been in stunning form this season, also scoring four goals and hoping to continue that by providing the ammunition for an eventual win.

And the final spell Pioli needs to cast is for him to use ex-Chelsea ace Olivier Giroud alongside Charles De Ketelaere in attack.
They believe the duo will be able to create the magic to exploit the Blues’ defensive vulnerability.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Potter has drawn comparisons to his namesake Harry.
Whilst still in charge of Brighton he had a scar under his left eye which he received from an ill-fated outing on Brighton beach while out walking with his wife.
