Paul Merson wasn’t pleased with the sacking of Frank Lampard and believed that he should have been given more time.
However, the Arsenal legend has revealed that he has been impressed by what he has seen so far under the new manager, Thomas Tuchel.
According to Merson, Tuchel has got Chelsea doing the basics first, as the Blues now have a very strong defence. Merson also backed Chelsea to finish in the top four.
He told Sky Sports: “At the moment, Tuchel is just trying to do things one step at a time. He’s getting the back three sorted to stop letting in goals.
“He has got them tight at the back and is steadily going about his job.”
“I still think Chelsea will finish in the top four, and so long as Werner doesn’t get frustrated he will in time hit it off,” he added.
“At the moment, they’re playing safe football.”
