The high point of Thomas Tuchel’s success at Chelsea is a strong defence that is difficult to penetrate.
Since his appointment as Chelsea boss, the Blues have faced top sides like Liverpool, Atletico Madrid and Manchester City, and in four games against the elite clubs, none were able to breach the Chelsea goal.
It’s been clean sheet upon clean sheet for Chelsea, and Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic is pleased with the team’s defensive solidity ahead of facing Real Madrid.
“We’ve been very strong at the back, very tough to break down, and we’ve been able to get good results in good moments,” said Pulisic of our defensive resilience.
“When the results are going well, not many questions can be asked about our style of play. Obviously it’s great to watch entertaining football all the time, attacking, free-flowing, this and that, but when it gets to this end of the season results are what matter.
“We are going to do everything we can to be on the positive end of these games coming up.”
