Former Chelsea women’s team player Eni Aluko has hailed the Chelsea team under Thomas Tuchel, but she still believes there’s a weakness in the team.
Chelsea have won four out of five games in all competitions and are yet to lose a game this season.
Despite the presence of UEFA Player of the Season, Jorginho, and UEFA best midfield player N’Golo Kante, and also the super talented Mateo Kovacic, Aluko believes Chelsea’s midfield could have a weakness.
According to Aluko, any team that presses Chelsea tight in the middle of the park can cause havoc to Thomas Tuchel’s side.
She said on BT Sport: “My only thing with Chelsea is the midfield. If I’m an opposition team looking at Chelsea I’m thinking, ‘Pack out the midfield, outnumber them, they only play two in there”.
“We saw Villa do it at the weekend. That’s the only thing, how can Tuchel tactically deal with oppositions that pack out the midfield? That’s the only way I see Chelsea struggling this season.”
