Chelsea might have seen a very possession based side in Thomas Tuchel’s first game in charge of the club, as the Blues played a goalless draw with Wolves at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Chelsea had 79 percent possession of the ball, and many believed it was unnecessary, with some fearing that Chelsea might go back to the era of Maurizio Sarri, where the team had lots of countless possession of the ball.

Meanwhile, Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi who had a good game against Wolves believes Tuchel’s tactical changes made a positive impact on Chelsea’s approach to the game against Wolves.

“I feel there was a lot more directness from the start,” said the 20-year-old winger.

“I feel like when we were playing from the start we were trying to go through the sides, trying to make runs in behind and trying to create as much as possible as quickly as possible.

“I think the changes he made as well were good changes because they came on and were being direct and trying to get to goal as quick as possible, which was helpful because they were getting tired and we were having fresh legs coming on trying to break their lines, so I think that was really good.

“It was unfortunate not to get that goal at the end or even from the start but sometimes that’s football, we want to win every game and we want to get three points every game so we have to take the point today and hopefully go on Sunday and get three points.”

Throughout the game, Tuchel was barking out instructions to the young winger. He seems to trust Hudson-Odoi a lot, and we may just see the young winger develop into something special under his watch.
