Former Chelsea player Alan Hudson has revealed the two problems Chelsea have despite the superb start under Thomas Tuchel.
Hudson isn’t convinced about Chelsea’s midfield and insists Timo Werner’s lack of goals is concerning.
Tuchel has brought something completely different from any other manager to Chelsea, the German Appeal maybe?” Hudson told CaughtOffside.
“His initial strategy of putting players on trial is paying dividends, something I thought Lampard got wrong.
“Tuchel has brought a calmness to the entire team, where everyone knows exactly where they stand. The wins again Liverpool and Everton were so easy it was ridiculous.”
“I still question the midfield,” he added. “Mason Mount has been absolutely outstanding recently, as he seems to slow his game down but still has the energy.
“But I feel the others all all still very much alike. I believe if Frank had bought Jack Grealish he would have brought a different type of control. These players are good in possession, but maybe very predictable – something Grealish is most certainly not.”
“Werner’s form is very concerning,” he added. “A player who looked so very dangerous early on has gone into some kind of cocoon, and needs lifting.
“People don’t really appreciate the confidence factor here – the kid looks lost and has had opportunities on goal which have made him look quite average. But maybe Tuchel thinks he’ll come good.
“How Tuchel would have loved Eden Hazard here, I think he’d be looking to win the Champions League hands down.”
