Chelsea are looking very solid under the new management of Thomas Tuchel and might pass as one of the most inform teams in Europe at the moment.
The Blues have only conceded two goals in thirteen matches, keeping eleven clean sheets in the process and winning nine matches of the thirteen.
The Blues have also reached the quarter finals of the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2014, knocking out La liga leaders 3-0 on aggregate in the round of 16.
It’s no doubt things are looking rosy at the club as pundits are even classifying them as one of the major challengers for the Champions League trophy.
Off the pitch, the German has also impressed with his man management of players, as he has helped reborn some certain players who initially fell out of Lampard’s plans.
Players like Marcos Alonso, Jorginho, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen who were regarded as fringe players under Frank Lampard have become important players under Thomas Tuchel.
With everything seeming like they’re going as planned, Thomas Tuchel still says that there are still certain areas he wants Chelsea to improve on.
While speaking after the Atletico game, he said: “We need to improve in counter-attacks clearly because we have so many ball wins. We need to improve in the context that after we win the ball, we have to be more forward-thinking, to use our speed and exploit the spaces.”
“Yes we are looking for the click, we are looking to be more clinical and precise in the decision making and counterattacks. Even in the second half, we could finish the game off easily with two or three goals but we are still lacking the last pass.
“Yes, but it was nice to see that our offensive guys are involved in these types of goals. It was a big boost.” He concluded.
The Blues face Sheffield United next in the FA cup quarter finals this weekend.
With the odds largely in the Blues favour, this might be a chance for Tuchel to rotate his team against fatigue.
