Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel tends to rotate his team for every game, and so far it has worked perfectly.

Meanwhile, Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hailed the quality of Reece James and Christian Pulisic, and believes that they deserve to play even more.

According to Rio Ferdinand, giving Reece James and Pulisic a good run in the team will help their form.

“Listen I’d like to see Reece James get a good run in the team,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

“I think in that position [right wing-back] he’s a fantastic option on that right side. He defends well enough and attacking wise, his distribution and passing into the final third is as good as anything about.

“Pulisic, another player, you expected him to play as soon as Tuchel came in because he played with him at Dortmund.

“He doesn’t, he bides his time, comes in now and he’s getting a tune out of him.

“That’s a sign of someone that’s a motivator but also that the players are starting to believe in him because he’s put work in on the training ground and they’re starting to see results.”
