"There Is No Leak Defence Here" says Tuchel

"When you have Rudiger and Zouma on the defense line with Reece James and Ben Chilwel, where is leaky defence?"says Tuchel

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has dismissed the idea that Chelsea had a leaky defence recently before his appointment to replace Frank Lampard claiming that it was Lampard's fault in rotating the defenders.

Speaking to one of the channels today evening, Tuchel says that Frank Lampard didn't understood how to rotating the players and that was the main reason why his defence was leaking,

" I had advised a him not to bench Rudiger but instead should have rotated him with Christensen but he kept on using the same formation which was more familiar with premier league teams strikers" says Tuchel.

He further explained that the role of defending should be embraced by the whole team in general but not the defenders alone. He further explained that it will be difficult for the defenders to handle the defensive role alone if they didn't get a partial support from the midfielders and even from strikers.

Tuchel has won sixteen out of seventeen played matches after Westbrom ended his unbeaten race last weekend. Chelsea's are currently fifth in premier league table with one point behind Westham United after trashing Crystal palace 4-1 on Saturday. Today Westham United defeated Leicester City 3-2 which enable them to be placed in top four spot in premier league table
