Thomas Tuchel may have had an incredible start to his reign as Chelsea manager, but the German gaffer will surely be looking forward to a greater achievement next season.

Chelsea want to win titles year in year out, and the Blues hierarchy demand that the club compete for trophies every season.

Former Chelsea boss Avram Grant, has hailed the work done by Tuchel so far, and he even admits that Chelsea have the right squad to win the league.

Asked whether Chelsea can return to a ‘title-challenging level’ under Tuchel for next season, Grant told Dubai Eye 103.8 Sport: “When you ask me this question the first thing I’m looking for is if they have the players or not because you need a strategy, you need a lot of things but you need to the players to do it and I think they have good players now.

“They have a very good goalkeeper and they have good defenders. [Antonio] Rudiger, for me, is one of the best defenders in the Premier League and you see it now when he’s playing and they have good midfield players, [N’Golo] Kante and others.

“They’ve spent a lot of money. [Kai] Havertz is a big talent, others players from Ajax, Timo Werner… I think they have the squad, they need to put them together but I don’t see any other team that has a better squad than them.

“Maybe in terms of attacking you can say Liverpool because they have [Mohamed] Salah and others. But if you look at the midfield and others, I think [it’s true].”
