West Ham David Moyes insists Frank Lampard deserves credit for Thomas Tuchel’s success with Chelsea.

Tuchel replaced Lampard as Chelsea boss in January with the Blues struggling for form and languishing in ninth but the Blues have been impressive under Tuchel and are on course to finish in the top four.

Moyes said: “He (Tuchel) has done unbelievably well, but I have to say I thought Frank Lampard had got together a really good squad of players.

“I think Frank was on the verge as well, there is something about being a young manager where you need to be given the opportunity for just a little bit longer to get really into it.

“So, I think Frank has been a bit unlucky.

“But I have to say that I think Thomas Tuchel has come in and shown experience. He is a very experienced manager, to manage Dortmund and PSG you have to have very good qualities to manage at that level and he has shown that with Chelsea.

“But I do think that Chelsea have arguably got the strongest squad in the Premier League so I don’t think it is a surprise to anybody that they are doing so well.”
