Chelsea are currently a side struggling to find their ruthless form and are very inconsistent even when they get into winning ways. Frank Lampard did quite well in securing fourth place last season but after spending close to 200 million euros this season, the performance was not acceptable. Thus, he was sacked and replaced by former Paris Saint-Germain coach, Thomas Tuchel. The German knows the nature of the Chelsea job and wants the club to win in any way possible.
Tuchel has started well at Stamford Bridge with one draw and two wins in his first three matches. He is also yet to concede a goal and his new three-at-the-back formation is working quite well with the club. The manager must keep up this good form though as the club’s owner, Roman Abramovich is known to be very ruthless when it comes to sacking managers. The Russian billionaire is very passionate about his club and cannot bear to see them lose. In an interview with the club’s official website(via Goal), Tuchel said,
“We try to create performance and for that you have to be clear to each player what performance is – what I need to do, what the manager expects from me and why, what the team expects from me as a player and how we play together as a group.
“In the end, it’s like an orchestra so we have to follow a certain rhythm, discipline, speed and style. This has to be clear to everybody.

The German manager went on to say that in some games they will be poor and get away with a lucky win, and in some games they will be be brilliant but still lose. However, he would chose the former over the latter any day as at the end of the day the result matters and it is always easier to improve upon a win.
The pressure is high for the German tactician as the Blues are currently in eighth place and it will be quite the task for them to get into a Champions League position. However, there have been some positive changes after Tuchel’s introduction and the manager is ready to accept the pressure and perform accordingly.
