Thomas Tuchel has taken charge of Chelsea over four games, and there has been massive improvements in results, as the Blues have gotten 10 points out of a possible 12.

Chelsea defeated Sheffield United 2-1 away at the Bramall Lane on Sunday night to climb up to 5th place in the league, as the Blues seek to fight back into the top four.

Premier League legend Alan Shearer has been impressed with Tuchel’s work so far, although he has revealed that the Chelsea team still needs firepower in attack.

“He’s [Tuchel] given everyone an opportunity,” Shearer said on BBC’s Match of the Day 2.

“He didn’t play [Mason] Mount in the first game, he’s swapped it over with [Ben] Chilwell and [Marcos] Alonso, [Olivier] Giroud has been in there, he’s changed the system slightly. He’s given everyone the opportunity to impress him

“I still think they are lacking that top-quality centre-forward to challenge [for the title].

“They’ll challenge for fourth but I think to go to the next level they’ll need a top centre forward.”
