Todd Boehly and Graham Potter celebrate Chelsea victory over Dortmund in Stamford Bridge tunnel
Chelsea manager Graham Potter and co-owner Todd Boehly shared a "joyous embrace" after Tuesday night's crucial win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
The American businessman was in attendance as an energetic Potter oversaw a 2-1 aggregate victory over the German outfit to secure what had looked like an unlikely passage to the quarter-finals.
It is now two wins on the bounce for Potter, who last week admitted that results had left his job "in peril" as ever-heightening speculation suggested his job was under severe threat.
Just four days later and the clouds appear to have parted over Stamford Bridge, emphasised by Potter and Boehly's hug in the tunnel after the game.

Paramount+ caught the moment on camera, adding that Boehly was enjoying a celebratory beer after the game.
Chelsea are next in action at Leicester, before home games against Everton and Aston Villa. They will learn their Champions League quarter-final opponents during next Friday's draw.
