The Chelsea board decided to sack Frank Lampard in January after a run of poor results that saw Chelsea slip down the league till 9th place.

Thomas Tuchel was appointed the following day after Lampard was sacked, and his impact has been instant. Chelsea have won seven of their games under Tuchel, with three draws, as the Blues remain unbeaten under the German gaffer.

Tuchel couldn’t have asked for a better start to his Chelsea job, as only Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have performed better than his side.

In those ten games, Tuchel has already defeated Jose Mourinho, Diego Simeone and Jurgen Klopp, and he has admitted that the club has ‘everything you need to be successful as a coach’.

Tuchel recently told the media after beating Liverpool: “I am flattered but I will give the flowers to the players and to the club. It is proven that Chelsea is an organisation and a club that has everything that you need to be successful as a coach and as a football team.

“It’s my job to bring out the very best of myself together with the team; there is no other way to express myself than with team performances.

“I am happy to be on the sideline. I feel an attitude, an unbelievable attitude, towards training, towards games, and I feel the bond that is necessary.

“Across the entire world where football is played, the teams that stand out are the teams that fight for each other, are ready to sacrifice, are happy for each other, push each other from the bench and this is exactly what I found.

“I found a lot of talent. It’s a pleasure to compete with this team and this group against other strong, strong managers with their groups. To be in this competition is pure joy. It is everything that you look for as a coach.”
