The London Chelsea team hopes that the former coach of Mainz and Borussaid Dortmund will achieve good results, but whatever the outcome of his first match against Wolverhampton will be, he will have a lot to do.
Although Chelsea spent 250 million euros in the summer transfer market, the team ranks tenth in the table, which resulted in the dismissal of Frank Lampard from coaching the team this week, after a, the team achieved a lonely victory in eight matches.
Occupying one of the first four places in the league to ensure participation in the Champions League is necessary, and achieving a victory over Wolverhampton, followed by scoring points against Burnley would put Tuchel in a good position before facing Tottenham in the middle of next week.
Chelsea’s exit from the Champions League in the last version, with a heavy defeat back and forth in the last sixteen, bothered the club’s owner Roman Abramovich – even if this exit came in front of Bayern Munich, who won the title.
Evolution is required this year, but Chelsea awaits another difficult confrontation against Atletico Madrid, leaders of the Spanish League, on February 23 and March 17.
The shape of the performance suggests that Chelsea’s victory over Atletico Madrid would come as a surprise but the victory over Atletico, led by Diego Simeone, would be a major boost for Tukhil.
The Premier League Cup did not matter to Chelsea after leaving the tournament from the round of sixteen, but the FA Cup provides the opportunity for the team to win the title this season. A confrontation with Barnsley, competing in the championship, at home in the fifth round on February 10, should not pose a real threat to Chelsea to reach the quarter-finals.
German Tuchel inherits a team of three German players, and none of them perform well. And while defender Antonio Rudiger may end up staying in the club he joined in 2017, the priority will be to improve striker Timor Werner and midfielder Kay Havertz. The duo arrived in exchange for big sums of money in the summer, and after an impressive start, the duo’s performance plummeted.
Lampard as a player was a world superstar but as a coach he struggled to settle for discipline and philosophy with Chelsea, the team he played for and was creative.
Tuchel will try to change that by relying on hard-pressed play and quick attacking football that is likely to be the new standard – at least in theory – for Chelsea at home at Stamford Bridge.
