Chelsea legend Joe Cole has revealed the missing link in Chelsea’s defeat to Manchester City on Saturday afternoon.
“Chelsea have had the most difficult start to the Premier League so to be there or thereabouts is a great start,” Cole said on BT Sport.
“He’s [Tuchel] always brilliant when he talks, he says what he thinks and feels, he feels he got it wrong.
“I felt the link was missing, Mason Mount, he was animated and trying to drive his players.
“Sometimes you have a match with three or four players who are off it and it looked like it. Chelsea will be there or thereabouts challenging because of that man [Tuchel].”
Mount missed the defeat to Manchester City due to a minor knock he picked during the Carabao Cup win over Aston Villa in midweek.
