Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has revealed the tactical difference between former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and current Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.

According to Rudiger, Tuchel ‘knows what he wants’ from his players and differs from Lampard in how he wants Chelsea to win the ball back.

Rudiger told Sky Sports: “Because of the results, it’s been good [under Tuchel so far].

“I think the coach knows what he wants. He has a way of playing football and you can see from the games, the players have adapted very quickly to that.

“From every coach, you want him to improve you. I don’t want to hear what I’m doing good, I want to hear what I’m not doing good and what I can improve. This is what I want to see from him.

“In general, the whole season, when it comes to defending, compared to other seasons, we did very well.

“That also started with Lampard and now the coach has a different idea, which is to keep the opponents up in their own half and try to win the ball back there rather than winning it further down in our half.”
