Chelsea fans have been warned not to read too much into the 1-0 Champions League win over Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night.
This is according to former Tottenham Hotspur striker Darren Bent, who believes Thomas Tuchel hasn’t set the world alight despite his unbeaten run as Chelsea boss.
Bent also claimed that Atletico Madrid would have been beaten by four or five goals had they come up against Premier League leaders Manchester City.
“I don’t think you can get too carried away because I thought Atletico were poor,” Bent told talkSPORT.
“Out of possession they went to a 6-3-1, please tell me how you’re ever going to score any amount of goals while playing that.
“Yes they’ve got Luis Suarez up front, second highest scorer in LaLiga this season, but his legs have gone a bit. It’s not the same Suarez at Barcelona and Liverpool who runs all over the place.
“I don’t think they had an awful lot to do to beat Atletico. Say Manchester City had played Atletico, they’d have beaten them by four or five because Atletico didn’t offer anything.
“I think for Thomas Tuchel all he can do is beat who’s in front of him. He’s done quite well, I don’t think he’s set the world alight but they are picking up positive results.”
