Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has made 59 changes to his starting XI in just 12 games since his arrival as Chelsea boss in January.

It’s the most changes by any manager in the Premier League since his arrival.

Tuchel has now explained why he has made too many changes to the starting XI.

He said: “Sometimes you make a lot of changes and sometimes you don’t make any changes at all. I don’t think we made many changes after Manchester United, Liverpool and Atletico.

“After Liverpool, I felt it was good to make changes to reward the guys and have fresh legs and minds against Everton.

“If you compare the line up to the Liverpool away game, there’s not so many chances. I think there were two but of course, if you compare it to the last game it was a bit more.

“But we have a strong squad, everyone deserves to play and show themselves. At some point you have to feel the changes, there will come moments where we will not do so many changes.”

Tuchel made five changes to the starting XI for the win over Everton on Monday and six changes to the starting XI for Saturday’s goalless draw against Leeds United.
