Who will Benefit and Suffer at Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel

Wolverhampton Wanderers - Wolves FC

Chelsea appointed the former PSG boss Thomas Tuchel this Tuesday. The Blues legend Frank Lampard was sacked due to a poor run of form in the Premier League.

Thomas Tuchel’ first game was against Wolves which ended in a draw. Tuchel was impressed by the performance of the team and said they nullified the opposition’s counter-attacks.

There were a lot of positives to take from that match. The second match was against Burnley which Chelsea won 2-0. The goals came from club captain Cesar Azpilicueta and the returning Marcos Alonso.

Since Thomas Tuchel arrived, he changed the formation to 3-4-2-1. A back 3 defense line with Callum-Hudson-Odoi as wing-back over Reece James who was a regular full-back under Lampard. Tuchel also brought Alonso in-place of first-choice full-back Benjamin Chilwell.


Callum Hudson-Odoi is the player who has shown immense advancement and potential in his game and has also won 2 MOTM awards in a row in both games.

Club captain Cesar Azpilicueta also looked like he will play regularly under the new manager forming a solid partnership at the back with Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger.

Marcos Alonso was splendid against Burnley being a constant threat while attacking as he replaced Ben Chilwell in the squad also looks he has football left in him.


Reece James looks like a player who might not be a regular under Tuchel as his space is taken up by Callum Hudson-Odoi who adds more flair going into the box while Reece James overlaps by the space created by the winger and puts in balls.

Benjamin Chilwell also looks like he might find minutes hard to come by as he was subbed-off early during the Wolves game and also did not feature against Burnley.

However, only time will tell the fate of these players and how they fare under new boss Thomas Tuchel. Modern Football is a game of form over everything. Form decides everything.
