Graham Potter and Thomas Frank interview each other on live TV before match

Graham Potter and Thomas Frank bizarrely interviewed each other live on Amazon Prime before their Chelsea and Brentford teams clashed.

The broadcaster uniquely had both managers on the touchline for a pre-match chat at the same time. Presenter Simon Thomas invited them to ask the each other one question.

Bees boss Frank went first, saying: "First I would praise Graham a lot. I think it's a fantastic journey he's been on and I'm so happy a coach that has been walking the long way gets that chance at a top six club and I think Graham has shown his qualities hugely, and I’ve no doubt he’ll do a good job at Chelsea.

"But if you’re asking one question, why are you changing your formation so many times?"

Potter, who has switched between a variety of formations since taking over the Blues last month, replied: "Good question. Well we don’t really see the formation as the end goal. We see actually how the team’s playing.

"The team needs to look consistent regardless of the formation and then it’s about the personnel, about how you wanna attack your opponent, how you wanna defend against the opponent. I suppose those are the things we consider, but hopefully there’s things that look the same even though the shape changes."

It was then his turn to put Frank on the spot, asking: [What's] the biggest difference from the Championship to the Premier League?"

Frank answered: "The pace of the game, I would say. The quality of the players is crazy. You can make one minor mistake, and it’s not punished every time we know that, but you just get punished so much more.

"So I’d say the speed of the game and also here, another thing I think, the level is more the modern game playing in the Premier League.

"So many changes, formation shifts in the game. A lot of teams are doing that more and more, so big challenge."

Fans lapped up Potter and Frank's back-and-forth online but that was unfortunately as entertaining as it got at the Gtech Community Stadium. Neither side could find a breakthrough and they had to settle for a bore draw.
