Thomas Tuchel’s record-breaking start to life as Chelsea manager has been remarkable. Appointed within the midst of a busy Premier League season with little time to prepare, his impact on the team is there for all to see and it’s interesting to see what happens now to the end of the season. 

Chelsea’s final performance against Everton under Frank Lampard was one of the poorest I have seen from a Chelsea team in years. You would have been off switching off and heading to australianonlinecasinosites instead. On that afternoon it was clear that the manager had lost the dressing room and the writing seemed to be on the wall. It was only after victory over Luton Town in the FA Cup in the following game that the decision was made to sack Lampard and announce his replacement 24-hours later. 

Thomas Tuchel was appointed with little time to prepare for Wolves at home in the Premier League and decided to revert to a starting eleven full of experience whilst switching formations to a back-three and two wingbacks pushed forward alongside two central midfielders. You wondered if it was a simple roll of the dice or a calculated switch. At the time, you would have said to stick to for a gamble instead. 

Chelsea’s problem under the previous manager had been our inability to not concede goals. Ever since he had taken over it was apparent that for the most part it was a real problem. The tactical switch made by Tuchel showed signs of immediate improvement that night with the team looking solid, well organised, and hard to break down. 

Feeling at the time the tactical switch was temporary, we were looking forward to seeing what Thomas Tuchel could develop with the players he now had at his disposal. We had previously read comment and opinions that he was a manager that liked to work with his team on a flexible approach to games, having the ability to switch from one formation to another based on the opposition he was due to face, to ensure that he would set his team up in the best way to achieve a positive outcome. 

Moving forward fourteen games later and the tactical implemented on day one remains and you understand why. Just two goals conceded in all competitions, Tuchel has masterminded immediate progress forward in the FA Cup to the semi-final against Manchester City at Wembley, the Champions League quarter-final against Porto over two legs after a stunning performance over two legs against Atletico Madrid, and a position in the top four of the Premier League heading into the final two months of the season. 

At times such as the international break, you get to stop, to step back and take stock of the situation that has been played out over the past two months. You look back at the fact that we have faced Manchester United, Tottenham, Everton and Liverpool who have all failed to score against us as we have won three out of four and drawn the other. You think of how we played in both games against Atletico Madrid – arguably one of the most disciplined and well-organised teams in Europe who simply did not have an answer to our tactics. Then, you think of our unbeaten run overall and think from where we were, to where we find ourselves, the transformation has been amazing. 

All of us hope that with some massive games coming up we continue to improve and build on what has been an amazing, record-breaking start to life at Chelsea for Thomas Tuchel.
