Thomas Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard midway through the season, as he replaced the Chelsea legend in January.

The German guided Chelsea to win the Champions League, and thus sealed his status as a favourite among Chelsea fans.

Under Tuchel’s guidance, a number of Chelsea players improved their game — as Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho and Kai Havertz seemed to have improved their performance.

One Chelsea player who seemed to get better is N’Golo Kante, who has been touted to win the Ballon d’Or, and Chelsea legend Pat Nevin has admitted that he never expected Tuchel to improve the Frenchman.

“I think he’s (Tuchel) actually made N’Golo Kante a better player, which I thought was impossible,” said the ex-Blues winger.

“I’ve never felt we should have him as the deepest midfielder all the time. I think he’s got more to give than that.

“Allowing N’Golo to break forward from that deeper position is what I’ve always wanted.

“There was a period at the end of the season where N’Golo was the best player in the world. He really was the best, he was doing things no one else could do.”
