12 games into his reign, Chelsea are yet to lose a game in all competitions, and this has to count for something as Thomas Tuchel’s side has become a strong force to play against.

Tuchel has turned Chelsea into a well drilled machine, as every Chelsea player know their role on the pitch.

According to The Sun, Tuchel has looked to fix Chelsea’s attack and teamwork by implementing secret ‘triggers’ for players to let team-mates know which flank they intend to go down and the ball they will play.

A source had told The Sun that Chelsea are a difficult side to play against, and they easily find their pass without sweat.

“You have no idea what’s going on but they know exactly what they are doing,” he told the newspaper.

“It just makes the attacks quicker and more deadly because sometimes a guy passing does not even have to look up to know where the runner will be.

“They use different words all the time too, so you can’t even work it out during the game.”
