Chelsea have been the most consistent team in the Premier League this season, and it is quite evident as Thomas Tuchel’s side side are currently top of the league, and have only lost one league game this season.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has hailed the quality of players at his disposal, and the German believes that the depth of the team has been able to cover up for the absence of key players in the team.

Players like Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner have been out of the squad for about a month now, while Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount and Mateo Kovacic have also had their time out of the squad due to injuries. Despite that, Chelsea have always found a way to win games convincingly.

Explaining the team’s success without certain key players, Tuchel said: “We always had the options. It’s on the players. When they are needed and when they have the chance to show their potential, they need to show it and they need to be ready. That’s life at Chelsea and this is what they do in a very impressive way.

“We always have options and when we play with Romelu we play with Romelu and when we play with Timo we play with Timo and when they are unavailable we try to find solutions, but that’s why we are here and that’s why we have a big squad.

“This is why we trust everybody because the guys know what it takes to play for Chelsea. We take care that the attention goes to the guys who are available and who are fit. For the injured players and the guys who are missing, they get our full attention to be as soon as possible back on the pitch.”
