Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has hailed midfielder Saul Niguez as a strong finisher even though he’s yet to score for the Blues since his move from Atletico Madrid.

Saul Niguez has found it difficult breaking into the starting XI at Chelsea and has made just two Premier League starts for the Blues.

Chelsea have remarkably had 17 different scorers across all competitions this season, but the Blues loanee isn’t one of them.

“It teaches us a lesson that everybody needs individual time to adapt and since many days he is stronger, I feel him a bit more relaxed and at the same time that gives him a little bit more freedom to impose his quality. He’s very strong in finishing, in arriving in the box,” Tuchel said about Saul Niguez.
