Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel will be happy Chelsea’s weaknesses showed up against West Brom and not against Porto in the Champions League.
Nevin also believes Tuchel learnt more about Chelsea in the 5-2 defeat to West Brom than he did in any other single Chelsea match he has been in charge of so far.
Nevin told Chelsea’s official website: “I reckon Tuchel learned more in the game against West Brom than he did in any other single Chelsea match he has been in charge of so far.
“It had all been a bit like clockwork up until now, but this was different, and it may well have shone a light on previously unnoticed weaknesses, ones that will only show up in the dark moments.
“He will be happy that this ‘out of the blue’ performance didn’t happen in Seville against Porto tomorrow night. That could have killed the Champions league dream in no time.”
