Thomas Tuchel has been hailed for the job he did at Chelsea last season. The German took over from club legend Frank Lampard midway through the season and turned Chelsea to Champions League winners while also sealing a place in the top four.

Tuchel is being backed to have a far more successful season this term, and former Blues striker Tony Cascarino is pleased to see how the careers of Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta have picked up under the German.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Cascarino said: “Pulisic played centre-forward [against Crystal Palace], scored a goal and caused havoc.

“Alonso wasn’t seemingly wanted anymore at Chelsea. Ends up being a player for them and was offered as being part of the Lukaku deal, and they’ve kept him. I’ve seen him play so well for Chelsea and I thought he was finished at the football club.”

Cascarino continued: “I thought Azpilicueta was finished at the football club and he played wing-back [against Crystal Palace]. Chelsea are a really good side.”
