Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech has revealed that the trainings and method of new boss Thomas Tuchel is very different, and he has assured that there will be better attacking display from the team.

Tottenham and Chelsea played out a goalless draw in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge, but Ziyech is expecting more in the game at the Tottenham Stadium.

“I think you will see a Chelsea that attacks more and controls the game more,” he said.

“That’s what we’ve tried to do in the last two games, to play with possession and from there try to attack a lot.

“When we played them last time, it was against a team that really played on the counter with quick people on the sides but really staying compact so there was not a lot of space for us.

“It then is the job to keep the ball and let the ball do the work, move it quick and in the end spaces will come.”

Ziyech has admitted that he’s impressed with Tuchel’s tactics and his training methods, as well as the rest of the team.

“It’s been good so far,” he added. “We’ve had a good week. It’s not always nice when a manager leaves and a new one comes in but he’s brought his new ideas and everybody is excited to work under him.

“The training has been different and in the last two games our formation and playing style was different as well so he really has his own ideas about the game. For us, it’s important to adapt quickly to it, to focus on the games and to follow the information the coach is giving us so we play how he wants us to play.”
