Former Arsenal star Lee Dixon has admitted that he has been surprised by the performance of Chelsea and how the Blues have improved their game under Thomas Tuchel in such a short time.
The former Gunner has said Chelsea’s level has changed, as the Blues now play with a winning mentality.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live after the final whistle against Zenit, Dixon said: “Chelsea have gone to a new level.
“The fact they have been playing under Tuchel for a short period of time they are starting to understand the way he wants the game to be played.
“Their mentality is changing into a winning mentality.
“To top that, they have brought in a world-class striker at the top of his game.”
