Just a month ago, Chelsea were languishing in the middle of the table, and there were fears that Chelsea could miss out on a top four spot.
However, the Blues’ form has been revived under new boss Thomas Tuchel, who is yet to lose a game since his appointment as Chelsea manager.
Results have been going Chelsea’s away, and interestingly, they have been going against our rivals. This has now ensured that Chelsea are currently in fourth position.
Chelsea needed a win against Newcastle to move into top four, and the Blues did it with ease, recording a 2-0 win over the Magpies, which was enough to leap over Liverpool and West Ham into fourth place.
Chelsea striker Timo Werner who was among the scorers on the night, has revealed his delight in being among the top four, but he insists that the race isn’t over yet.
Werner said after the Newcastle clash: “It was really good from us. We have played in the last weeks very good football.
“There is still a long way to go for the rest of the season, but if we keep going like this it will be a good end for us.”
Liverpool who were top of the league just over a month ago are currently occupying 6th position, but their star man Mohamed Salah is confident that they will fight their way back.
“It’s been a tough period for many reasons,” said Salah. “We are champions and will fight like champions, until the very end.
“We will not allow this season to be defined by the recent results we’ve had. That is my promise to all of you.”
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was also displeased with the team’s showing in the second half.
He told the media after the game: “In the second half, the first three or four minutes were more or less the picture for the whole half. We suddenly gave away two shots in the first two minutes, we lost duels, we had suddenly corners against us and I felt we had the feeling of something to lose.
“We played too many balls back when we could escape the pressure, we did not open up or keep the advantage to put the game into the opponent’s half. The counter-attacks in the second half were not precise or clinical enough to score a third goal and finish the game.”
