Chelsea have become a difficult side to play against under Thomas Tuchel, as the Blues defence have become a tight area to go through.

It still remains a mystery as how Tuchel’s magic touch has helped the team, and it’s even very difficult for Chelsea to concede a shot on their own goal, before you consider scoring past Chelsea. Such has been the quality of the team’s defence.

However, for all of Chelsea’s defence, the attack still remains where Chelsea have issues and Tuchel has admitted that they have been working so hard on it in training.

Tuchel has recorded eight wins and four draws in his opening two months in charge, as he remains unbeaten so far. Chelsea have kept 10 clean sheets so far under Thomas Tuchel, which remains a very good record.

However, the Blues have only scored 13 goals under Tuchel which remains a worrying record in 12 matches played. Six of those goals have been shared between midfield duo Mason Mount and Jorginho, with Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham scoring once each, while veteran frontman Olivier Giroud has two to his name and Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta the other scorer since Tuchel’s arrival.

Chelsea have also played four games without finding the net, and the Blues have scored 2+ goals in just four games under Tuchel.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has admitted that his team needs to start converting their chances, as this remains the only weak link in the Chelsea team so far.

“We have enough quality to use the chances better and to be more clinical,” the Chelsea manager said.

“It is our responsibility, my responsibility to create more and to maybe have more big chances.”
