Tuchel should be willing to compromise on three issues in order to diversify Chelsea’s play

To make the Blues become stronger this season, coach Thomas Tuchel should diversify his options

Chelsea’s plan to bring in new players during the summer transfer window has not changed. However, coach Thomas Tuchel essentially had the best cards; he simply needed to increase the thickness of the force. Here are three issues on which the German captain must be flexible in order to diversify the Blues’ play.



The smoothness of the game was one of the issues Chelsea faced last season. Coach Tuchel frequently employs different tactics for each opponent in order to find a way to defeat them, but the flexibility between midfielders and fullbacks is not always guaranteed. As a result, the German captain’s 3-4-3 system needed to be improved.


The attack trio can be swapped out.

Tuchel’s 3-4-3 formation works best when the midfield is mobile. Mateo Kovacic and Conor Gallagher can provide the necessary skill set and energy if N’Golo Kante or Jorginho underperform.

Tuchel did not employ a traditional number 9 in attack. After a disappointing season, Romelu Lukaku has been loaned back to Inter Milan. The Blues also suffered a setback when Timo Werner was sold to RB Leipzig.


As a result, the former PSG captain must continue to believe in the use of a virtual 9 in the squad. The arrival of Raheem Sterling is expected to help Chelsea’s strikers become more virtual, giving them more options for approaching the opponent’s goal. Sterling, Kai Havertz, and Mason Mount are all intelligent players who can meet Tuchel’s requirements. Furthermore, Christian Pulisic is eager to prove himself.


Liverpool and Manchester City, both strong contenders for the title, have the ability to switch states quickly and diversely. No one can deny that Thomas Tuchel has built a strong defense. Despite the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, the addition of Kalidou Koulibaly gives The Blues fans peace of mind.

Tuchel, on the other hand, must devise effective counter-attacks for the Stamford Bridge team. In transition situations, the combination of the three routes is therefore critical. To compete for the title with Liverpool and Manchester City, Chelsea must not only have a strong defense, but also score many, many goals.


Moving Lukaku back to Inter Milan will free up space in Chelsea’s attack. If “The Blues” do not sign more strikers, Kai Havertz will be the top kick in attack for the majority of next season.

Havertz is a different type of striker than Lukaku, willing to go deep to link play with his teammates rather than simply hanging around in the middle. Chelsea now has a plethora of attacking players with a wide operating tendency with the addition of Sterling, in addition to available names such as Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, and Hakim Ziyech.
