Thomas Tuchel took over as Chelsea boss in January, and the German has overseen instant success at the club, as fortunes have since turned around since the German took charge.
However, one thing that has lacked in his Chelsea team is goals. His team has been winning and keeping clean sheets, but had never been able to score more than two goals in a single game.
However, things took a different turn in the game against Crystal Palace, where Chelsea were already 2-0 up inside the first ten minutes of the game. At half-time, Chelsea were 3-0 up and ended up scoring four goals at the end of the game.
Chelsea could easily have won the game by a higher margin, but the team missed a lot of chances.
Tuchel was asked about surpassing the two-goal mark, and he admitted that they have been working on this a lot, and it is how he wants his team to play.
Tuchel said after the game: “It was clearly the performance where we created the most chances, the most touches in the opposition box, and scored the most, but you cannot compare it to Champions League matches or a game at Liverpool. But I’m happy with what we played today.
“I feel it is very difficult to score in the Premier League in any match. We did a great job offensively as a team. But it is a complex game, you cannot divide matches into offense and defence.
“While we were attacking we were closing the spaces. We did not allow Crystal Palace to escape the pressure, we had high ball recoveries, we were very brave in pushing up the pitch while we were attacking.
“The message we give is clear. We defend together and attack together. Nothing changes in that message. We are very happy we could create a lot but against Porto we start from scratch.”
